Goldeneye Pinot Noir 2015
Winemaker Notes :
Combining the lush fruit of our warmer Anderson Valley estate vineyards with the rustic elegance of grapes from the cooler “deep end” of the valley. This is a rich and beautifully textured Pinot Noir with velvety tannins and bright acidity. On the palate, flavors of candied cherry and dark plum are underscored by deeper notes of forest floor. The finish is long and supple, with lively fruit and just a touch of French oak.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a full-bodied, ripe and mouthfilling wine that offers generous black-plum and blackcherry flavors, a smooth texture and a lingering finish. The aroma is nicely spiced in new oak accents that meld well with the black fruits on the palate.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Pinot Noir is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with ripe red cherries and mulberries on the nose with touches of damp soil and dried herbs. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a good intensity of warm red berries and earth notions framed by chewy tannins and a lively line, finishing on a savory note. 16,396 cases produced.
