2019 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
The Goldeneye winery is dedicated to the production of world class Pinot Noir wines. The winery is in the heart of Anderson Valley along the migratory pathway of the common Goldeneye duck. Founded on a commitment to quality, Goldeneye brings the tradition of viticultural excellence established by Duckhorn Vineyards in the Napa Valley to the Pinot Noirs of the Anderson Valley.
Showcasing the rich diversity of the Anderson Valley, this exuberant wine displays color of brilliant ruby. The aromas of fresh juicy raspberry, strawberry, and red plum, as well as hints of spice, black tea, red licorice, and sweet saddle leather. On the palate the wine has an expansive character showing bright acidity and firm, chewy tannins that merge to create a supple texture that accentuates the cherry and baked blackberry flavors, with notes of nutmeg and ginger that emerge on the finish with perfect balance to create a sumptuous and sophisticated experience. Lovely and thoroughly enjoyable!
