Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, September 2013
Shows good tension between the tight, vibrant blueberry and blackberry notes, with firm tannins showing a loamy earth and roasted herb edge. This fans out nicely on the finish. Drink now through 2022. – JL

Lovely expressive nose of fresh strawberry red cherry and cola. Muscular on the palate with an integrated tannic grip behind these primary fruit flavors. Subtle spice and mocha notes round out this complex pinot... Lovely expressive nose of fresh strawberry red cherry and cola. Muscular on the palate with an integrated tannic grip behind these primary fruit flavors. Subtle spice and mocha notes round out this complex pinot. Definitely cellar-worthy - I would wait at least 2 years before popping the cork.

Winery

Goldeneye (Duckhorn)

In 1990, after fifteen years of making world-class Bordeaux-varietal wines under the famous Duckhorn label, owners Dan and Margaret Duckhorn embraced their growing love of Pinot Noir. The vision for Goldeneye was simple - to start a winery that could make a terroir-inspired expression of California Pinot Noir of equal stature to the acclaimed Merlots they had pioneered at Duckhorn Vineyards in Napa Valley.

They knew that the finest Pinot Noir thrives in very different conditions than Merlot. They found what they were looking for in the Anderson Valley, an appellation that had all the ingredients for producing world-class Pinot. In 1996, Goldeneye Winery was founded and the first estate vineyard was selected. A year later, Goldeneye harvested its first grapes, a modest 7 tons of estate fruit yielding 375 cases of wine, which were released in March of 2000.

Today, Goldeneye features the appellation’s preeminent Pinot Noir estate program, which spans the valley and includes four estate vineyards and more than 200 acres under vine. Their style has become the benchmark for the region, and has catapulted Goldeneye to the ranks of the world’s finest Pinot Noir.
