2016 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1389222 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is full bodied, dark and brooding—in a good way. It has concentrated flavors of black fruit and ripe red berry as well as attractive oak accents of cinnamon and clove. Fine-grained tannins lend ample support and structure. (JG) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Juicy, with firm richness to the burnished dried cherry, berry and cedary flavors. Suave midpalate, featuring a creamy texture. The finish is powered by seductive spice and forest floor notes. (KM) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Quietly complex if a little slow to expand on the nose with a mix of red cherries and strawberries infused with subtle notes of dusty soil, this wine surprises a bit by being bigger and richer once in the mouth and musters a far more convincing fruity presence than its slightly introverted aromas predict. While it finishes with enough tannin to commend additional bottle time, it is not too astringent to warn off early drinking, but, that said, its inklings of layering to come are in and of themselves reason enough to exercise three or four years of patience. Inner quote mark (11/2019)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley sports a medium ruby color to go with a classic Anderson Valley bouquet of ripe cherries, dried blueberries, forest floor, and dried flowers. It's silky, seamless, and elegant on the palate, with a terrific sense of elegance and purity. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's notes: "Combining the lush fruit of our warmer estate vineyards with the rustic elegance of grapes from the cooler “deep end” of the valley, this wine offers a beautifully complete expression of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. On the palate, lively flavors of wild strawberry and cherry are in perfect harmony, with terroir-driven hints of saddle leather, anise, pennyroyal and wild mushrooms, as well as notes of confectionary spices and vanilla from aging in the finest French oak...The 2016 growing season delivered another exceptional vintage to the Anderson Valley. Early and consistent spring rains provided for an excellent fruit set, followed by ideal summer temperatures, which brought the acidity and flavor profiles of the grapes into perfect balance. This sequence led us to begin harvesting our warmer estate vineyards beginning in mid-August, while a well-timed mid-September heat spike allowed our grapes in the cooler 'deep end' of the valley to develop beautiful structures and lush flavors."
