2007 Goldeneye Confluence Vineyard Estate Grown Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 516 cases, $75. This vineyard is located in the heart of the Anderson Valley at the headwaters of the Navarro River and displays a range of soils and exposures. · Moderately garnet in color in the glass. Amazingly aromatic with a potpourri of cherries, brioche and sandalwood. Delicious red cherry and raspberry flavors accented with spice and restrained oak. Not all about fruit, with some edgy earthiness adding character. Mild dry, suede tannins make for easy drinking now. The lightest in weight of the four vineyard based wines and the most charming now. A great expression of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. Reviewed December 14, 2010 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2005 Goldeneye Confluence Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $75. This vineyard is adjacent to the headwaters of the Navarro River with varying exposures and soils. · Sweet, richly oaked dark cherries, redwood, and old wine cellar scents. Restrained dark Pinot fruits with a faint chemical taste I can’t put my finger on. Fairly elegant with fine-grained tannins. A decent wine that may need some time to become more expressive, but there isn’t much going on right now. Reviewed October 1, 2008 WINERY » ARTICLE »
