Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Goldeneye was well-received by our mini-tasting group. It opens with a cherry and rose bush bouquet with hints of wet stone and red raspberry tea. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty plum and mineral blend with hints of faint cola and cranberry. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins drift away nicely. Our group thought this Pinot was very food friendly. We thought it would be ideal with Thanksgiving foods like turkey, stuffing and cranberries. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker 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.
