2007 Goldeneye The Narrows Vineyard Estate Grown Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 506 cases, $75. The coolest estate vineyard, planted in 1991 and situated on a narrow ridge top in the northern end of the Anderson Valley. This is typically the last-picked and lowest-yielding property. The majority of this wine is from block 20, planted to a mix of Pommard and Dijon clones, a section that the producers are particularly fond of. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Brooding aromas of black cherries and oak bark. Rich with concentrated ripe, sweet darker fruits which have some charm but are buried in tannins now. Impressively smooth on the palate. This wine will appeal to fans of full-bodied Pinot Noir and would make a perfect transition wine for an ex-Cabernet drinker. A good cellar candidate. Very Good.

2006 Goldeneye The Narrows Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., $75. A challenging site to farm due to its coolness and threat of frost. · A big wine with a dark fruit, earth and dark oak toast imprint showing significant tannin and some alcohol on the back end. Plenty of structural power in a jammy style. Reviewed May 26, 2009 WINERY » ARTICLE »
