Goldeneye (Duckhorn Vineyards) Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2014

$79.99

Goldeneye's Gowan Creek Vineyard is a beautiful Reserve Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley that should be on the short list for any Pinot lover.  Small-production, try it while it's available. 93 Points "Editors Choice" Wine Enthusiast:  "This full-bodied and beautifully flavored wine goes deep in terms of  ripe fruit and subtle spices, and has a calm, composed character and ultrasmooth, slightly restrained texture. Delicious black-cherry and currant notes come out in the bouquet, weave through the palate and linger on the finish." Gowan Creek is the home to Goldeneye's new winery and offers a perfect mid-valley winegrowing location that combines warmer Anderson Valley elements with coastal fog and cooling influences from the northern end of the valley. As a result, this wine is a classic expression of Pinot Noir, with signature aromatics, lush extraction and rich texture. The nose displays the wild blueberry and blackberry layers that have come to define Gowan Creek, supported by notes of loganberry, char, black pepper and dried meats. On the palate, the attack is immense, the tannins long and the acidity persistent, all combining to create a wine with sumptuous, dark-fruit-driven complexity.

In 1997, Goldeneye harvested its first grapes, a modest 375 cases of wine. Ruby with aromas of ripe red fruits with layers of herb and spice scents. Grapes blended from several vineyards and aged in French oak for 16 months, the palate had flavors of cranbery & wild cherry fruit, with sweet currants adding smoke, leather, cacao and earthy tones, nice mouthfeel that lingered to a long finish. Complex, consistent. Very Nice! Perfect!

Bottle #3 post post-thanksgiving round of golf (in Minnesota). Cayenne tinged burnt caramel on the nose, velvety mouthfeel and a rich finish provide a nice wrap up to the afternoon. On to the main event shortly. Bring on the uber.
