Winemaker's Notes

This well-balanced, medium-weight wine offers bright acidity and a long, satisfying finish. The aroma is rich and evocative of dark cherries, nutmeg, caramelized apple, cinnamon, and clove. On the palate, it is full of plum, spice, cherry, strawberry, and vanilla oak layers.

Though delicate and understated, this wine's compelling force of flavor, weight, and potent spice create a depth and density that cannot be missed. Drink until 2015.

"Rich oak combines nicely with equally rich cherry-like fruit and suggestions of dried flowers in the nose of this outgoing effort, and the wine's flavors follow suit with sweetly spiced cherries running their length. It is firmly balance but fully expressed and easy to taste even now, and it will make very fine drinking over the next several years."
-Connoisseurs' Guide

Critical Acclaim

"Winemaker Zach Rasmuson did not produce a Narrows Vineyard bottling in 2005. Instead, those grapes went into the regular Goldeneye, to its great benefit. The wine is particularly rich and powerful in cherry pie filling, black raspberry, mocha, Dr. Pepper and smoky oak flavors, with a gorgeous, mouth-filling texture that’s dramatic on the finish."
92 Points

"Anderson Valley Faded garnet hue. An earthy, as well as chalky, bouquet with clove and tomato leaf accents. Mixed flavors of mocha, chalk, dark honey and brown spice. Dusty powdered chocolate and flintiness in the finish with a lasting, delicate sweetness. "
