    Winemaker's 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:

    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.

    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.
