Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Gowan Creek Vineyard 2007
Gowan Creek is the home to our winery and offers a perfect mid-valley winegrowing location that combines warmer Anderson Valley elements with coastal fog and cooling influences from the northern end of the valley. As a result, this wine displays lush extraction and a rich palate with voluptuous red and black fruit layers of raspberry, mulberry, blueberry and huckleberry. This juicy core of berry fruit is supported by excellent tannins and undercurrents of mushroom, herbs, charcuterie, violets and oak.
Really smoky, tangy, and sweet, with a nice hit of black pepper on the palate up front. Very oak intensive. Goes down like a clown on assasinate-a-clown day.
Soft gamey nose but opens up with huge spice in the mouth. Delightfully complex with tea, leaves, cola, but also a very slight melon note on the back end. Lean tannins. Great stuff.
