Winemaker Notes

This elegantly balanced, medium-weight Pinot Noir displays ideal acidity, a velvety texture and tannins that segue to a long, clean finish. Aromas of clove, dried thyme, lavender and cocoa are underscored by enticing layers of vanilla, caramelized sugar, toasty oak and a hint of rosemary. A rich and nuanced expression of Anderson Valley winemaking, the 2006 vintage combines immediate appeal with flavorful depth and density.

Harvest Notes
In 2006 the weather cooperated—in fact, it was ideal. Temperatures remained mild, allowing us to handpick each block based on ripeness and flavors, and extending the harvest over seven weeks, commencing at Confluence Vineyard on September 7th and culminating with The Narrows Vineyard on October 28th. Winemaker Zach Rasmuson describes the fruit quality from the 2006 vintage as impressive: "the wines are full, well-extracted, and tasty."

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Very rich, very fine, this Pinot is a blend of Goldeneye’s best vineyards. It shows a molten density, like liquid silver, lush in red cherries, licorice, cinnamon, coco, dried herb and orange zest flavors, and should develop in the bottle through 2012.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Firm and rich, this is marked by tight mineral, dried currant and berry fruit that gains velocity and depth, with touches of cedar and anise and tannins that give the flavors traction. Needs time. Best from 2014 through 2017.

Goldeneye
The Goldeneye winery is dedicated to the production of world class Pinot Noir wines. It is located in the heart of Anderson Valley along the migratory pathway of the common Goldeneye duck.

In 1997, Goldeneye harvested its first grapes, a modest seven tons of estate fruit, yielding 375 cases of wine. After a decade of research, planning and experimentation, Goldeneye's inaugural vintage was announced in March of 2000. By focusing on the careful cultivation of its estate vineyards, Goldeneye has been able to grow, while still remaining true to its philosophy of being a small, quality-driven winery.

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. With each new vintage, Goldeneye continues its evolution toward becoming one of the world's premier producers of Pinot Noir.
