Winemaker's Notes

A complex nose of tea leaves, pipe tobacco, and black cherry invite you to spend some time with this compelling wine. Aromas of black pepper, blood orange, and sweet violets are framed by hints of toast and vanilla.

"Bright red. Explosively aromatic bouquet of dark cherry, blackcurrant, Asian spices, minerals and pungent flowers. This reminded me of a suave northern Rhone wine in its energetic display of spicy dark fruits, minerality and floral character. The tangy dark berry flavors coat the palate but betray no excess ripeness or weight. Silky, fresh and sweet on the finish, with the spiciness echoing. Lovely stuff. - Tanzer" 92pts.

"If you know Goldeneye's new Gowen Creek bottling, this is a mearly identical Pinot, a little wonder, for the vineyards are right next to each other. This wine dazzles with exotic, feral notes of wild blackberries and blueberries, and forest scents of pine needle, roasted mushroom, grilled meat, chocolate, anise, cinnamon, nutmeg and coriander. New oak adds even richer nuances of smoky caramel and vanilla to this compelling wine. -WineEnthusiast" 95pts.

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
