2007 Goldeneye Ten Degrees Estate Grown Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 222 cases, $100. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Very hard to coax much out of the nose after opening. The next day the wine had taken on much more aromatic interest with scents of berry jam, cassis and spiced plums. A robust, deeply flavored, tannic wine that has a good lift of complimentary acidity to bring everything into balance. Much better tasting over time in the glass and spectacular the next day where a stunning fruit core arrives at the forefront. This is not a wine for the timid, but for those who yearn for this hedonistic style, this is your Holy Grail. Definitely decant this wine if you open it now. Reviewed December 14, 2010
