2009 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 9,385 cases, $55. Sourced from four estate vineyards (19 clones of Pinot Noir), combined with 5% of grapes from independent growers. Aged 18 months in 70% new French oak. · Medium reddish-purple robe. Brooding aromas of blackberry jam and dark chocolate. Medium weight flavors of blackberries and black plums with toasty oak in the background. Plentiful tannins both from the fruit and oak. Lavishly fruited, yet linear in character and seems to want for some zip. Good. Reviewed June 24, 2012
