2016 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir


2016 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir


Winemaker 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.

Critical Acclaim

COMMENTARY: When I look for top quality and dependable Pinot Noirs, Goldeneye has been one of my best choices over the years. The 2016 vintage is solid and well-built. TASTING NOTES: This wine is pert, well-structured, and frisky. Its aromas and flavors of dried earth, black fruit, berries, and savory spices should pair it well with a spit-roasted leg of lamb.

Wine Enthusiast

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.


Jeb Dunnuck

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. Drink it over the coming 6-7 years.
