Goldeneye's 2009 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.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.
