2017 Duckhorn 'Goldeneye' Pinot Noir Anderson Valley
Winemaker's Notes: Combining the lush fruit of our warmer estate vineyards with the rustic elegance of grapes from the cooler “deep end” of the valley, this wine offers a beautifully complete expression of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. On the palate, lively flavors of wild strawberry and cherry are in perfect harmony, with terroir-driven hints of saddle leather, anise, pennyroyal and wild mushrooms, as well as notes of confectionary spices and vanilla from aging in the finest French oak.
Wilfred Wong - "The 2017 Goldeneye is a spot-on Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. This wine exudes elegance from its aromas and flavors of bright red fruits and underlying minerality. Pair it with grilled, dill-accented wild salmon. "
Jeb Dunnuck - "Starting with the 2017 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley, which comes from multiple sites in the Anderson Valley and spent 16 months in 60% new French oak, it has a juicy berry-fruited nose as well as ample violets, candied orange peel, and spice-driven aromas and flavors. It's one of the more approachable wines in the lineup yet still has classic Anderson Valley structure and minerality, medium body, and a great finish."
