Goldeneye Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||California, North Coast, Anderson Valley|
Starting with the 2017 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley, which comes from multiple sites in the Anderson Valley and spent 16 months in 60% new French oak, it has a juicy berry-fruited nose as well as ample violets, candied orange peel, and spice-driven aromas and flavors. It's one of the more approachable wines in the lineup yet still has classic Anderson Valley structure and minerality, medium body, and a great finish.
This attractive, ultrasmooth, full-bodied wine gently wraps black cherries and mulled plums in soft tannins and modest acidity for a warm, mouthcoating effect.
Brick notes accent the ripe dark fruit and dried berry flavors. Cumin and cardamom details emerge on the finish. Drink now. 19,300 cases made.
