Winemaker Notes

The pinnacle of our portfolio, Ten Degrees showcases the depth and diversity of our Anderson Valley estate vineyards, offering fragrant layers of blueberry and blackberry, as well as sophisticated notes of redwood forest, moist earth, and spice. Though rich and alluring on the palate, a beam of bright acidity adds depth and nuance to the dark berry flavors, with hints of tobacco leaf, anise, and pennyroyal revealing themselves as the wine evolves in the glass.

Tasting Panel

 Winemaker Katey Larwood understands the distinctiveness of the Anderson Valley when it comes to crafting world-class Pinot Noir. For this wine, she selects what she calls “the most complete and compelling estate lots,” taking a deep dive into black cherry, plum, and just-tilled earth. The vineyard’s proximity to famed California redwoods allows us to imagine its true forest-floor nature. Licorice, dark chocolate, and brush pave the road to the finish.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Goldeneye Ten Degrees Anderson Valley Pinot Noir is an outstanding wine. It is well-made and built to develop over the long haul. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers beautiful and intricate aromas and flavors of black fruit, licorice, and chalk. Enjoy it with rosemary and black pepper-accented, roast leg of lamb. (Tasted: February 4, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

 Dazzling spicy aromas and vibrant black-fruit flavors converge beautifully in this bold but balanced wine. Scents of wood smoke, toasted oak, cardamom and black pepper meet black cherry, aged beef and blueberry on the palate, buoyed by moderate tannin's and subtle nervy acidity. Best from 2023. Cellar Selection.

The most expensive Pinot Noir in the lineup, the 2017 Pinot Noir Ten Degrees is a cellar selection brought up in 100% new French oak. This medium ruby/plum-hued 2017 has a ripe, sexy bouquet of black cherry and cassis fruits as well as toasted spice and dried flower notes, medium to full body, a ripe, textured mouthfeel, and the classic minerality and focus that's present in all of these wines. It has some upfront appeal as well as the more savory style of the 2017 vintage and should evolve gracefully for 10-12 years.

Wine Spectator
Ripe, with good power to the zesty cherry and raspberry tart flavors, featuring notes of hot stone and cedar. Dark chocolate and Asian spice details emerge on the toasty finish.

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.
