Winemaker Notes

Exuding fragrant layers of blackberry, blueberry, ripe red plum, black tea, anise, and pennyroyal, this wine is dark, rich, and complex. The blue and black fruit flavors are echoed on the bright and juicy palate, where they are underscored by a shimmering cool-climate acidity that provides length and persistence to a long, mouth-filling finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
SJ 95
The Somm Journal

While older heritage clones planted on the site’s west side bring in savory tones. The wine is deep and concentrated, with notes of black pepper and wet leaves. Blue and black fruit integrates with Worcestershire sauce, black bean, and roasted coffee.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Goldeneye Gowan Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir shows excellent density and fine structure on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with black fruits, dried leaves, and oak in its flavors. Pair it with grilled lamb chops. (Tasted: November 6, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Goldeneye, California
Goldeneye Winery Video
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.

Anderson Valley, located in Mendocino County just above Sonoma County, is one of California’s coolest AVAs, allowing it a long growing season. Only 15 miles long, the region makes a slice eastward through the mountains, from the frigid Pacific Ocean. Dramatic diurnal temperature variations here preserve grape acidity and thus freshness in the finished wines. These are prime conditions for growing Pinot Noir, and the valley produces many fine versions. Characteristics of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir typically include crisp acidity, cranberry and strawberry notes as well as earthy notes of forest floor and mushroom.

Still Pinot Noir, however, is only part of the story. Pinot Noir, along with Chardonnay, are also grown for Anderson Valley’s exceptional sparkling wines. Produced via the traditional method, these offer a classic toasty note from lees aging, bright, complex fruit notes and a clean, refreshing character.
