Upright and solid on the nose with slightly stemmy toned, and candied black cherry fruit, that features subtle hints of cardamom and coriander. This is packed with sweet fruit yet manages to avoid the cloying sweetness of many wines in this style. It’s open and round with a rich, soft character and nice notes of spices and a hint of anise seed that carries over to the moderately long finish, which shows a bit more tannin and milk chocolate than one finds on the palate. 90pts

spicy black pepper aromas that open up to varying berry flavors. Delicious from the very first sip, amazing concentration of fruit and complexity of flavors, blackberries, plums, currants, some dark chocolate notes, powerful for a pinot noir, elegant and refined. I very much enjoyed this!

immediate aromas of cherries, strawberries, raspberries with delicate earth-like flavors on the palate, wonderful complexity for a Pinot Noir, a little spice and bramble come together with hints of bright red fruit, stunning

strawberries, raspberries, plums, dried earth, cedar and some herbal notes, chocolate lingers on the palate as well w/currants and tiny bits of spice and pepper, nice complexity of flavors for a pinot noir, wonderful structure and delicate balance of the flavor components, acidity, and tannins.

Dusty cherries on the nose. Super lean tart little missile that shoots to the back of the mouth and finishes with a long complex chalky cherry finish.

Very nice herbal and menthol nose. Very rich and fruity with flavors of cherry, plum and cassis. Smooth attack, but with good acidity later. Raspberries with a light leathery flavor on the finish. Long finish. A nice wine.

Beautifully intense nose of raspberry, bramble and marshmallow. Soft and smooth with a silken texture. An incredibly deep, dense and fruity wine. Just beautiful. Bramble, blackberry and some cherry fruit dominate. There's a nice earthy taste on the finish. All in all a fantastic wine

The product of a standout growing season, the 2007 Migration is sleek and silky, with enticing upfront aromatics and compelling dark fruit layers. The nose displays jasmine tea and flowering blackberries, alongside dusty undertones of fresh chanterelles. These aromatics are echoed on the palate and accentuated by flavors of huckleberry, boysenberry, licorice, plum, white chocolate and orange blossom, all leading to a cleansing, medium-length finish.

hen Duckhorn Vineyards wanted to do Pinot Noir they went north where the cool climate Anderson Valley in Medocino showed real promise for growing complex richly textured Pinot Noir. Now, with five estate vineyards in the Valley, their Goldeneye Pinot Noir is a true success story. Is in the heart of the Anderson Valley and is home to the Goldeneye winery. The unique terroir of the Gowan Creek Vineyard brings together elements from the valley’s warmer regions in the south and its cooler, northern end and offers an ideal Southwestern exposure. This limited single vineyard Pinot was aged 16 months in French Vosges, Troncais and Allier oak barrels. Wine Enthusiast magazine scored it 93 points saying "Dark and tannic, reflecting the vineyard’s location in the cooler, foggier northwest, this Pinot Noir is dramatic in depth of flavor. With its core of blackberries, cherries, blueberries, cola and rhubarb, it’s tight and rigid now, suggesting 5–6 years in the cellar." Limited!!

Winemaker's Notes:

A more than worthy successor to our inaugural 2006 Ten Degrees, this benchmark cuvée captures the power, depth and diversity of our Anderson Valley Estate program. A seamless blend of opulence and elegance, it is rich, broad and sumptuously mouthfilling, with compelling layers of luscious red fruit, cured meats, toasted oak and vanilla. Powerful, complex, and with exceptional tannin structure, this wine possesses excellent cellaring potential.
