2007 Estate Grown Ten Degrees Pinot Noir
Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast
This is a best barrel blend of Goldeneye’s several vineyards. It takes its beautifully ripe fruit from Confluence and the tannins of The Narrows to yield a dry, densely constructed and moderately ageable wine of exceptionally high quality and appeal. Blackberries, blueberries, cherries and exotic spices characterize the flavors of this tremendous wine, one of the best of the vintage out of the Anderson Valley. Only 222 cases were produced.
This delivers aromas of blackberry and wild berry as well as touches of berry jam, with mineral, sage and graphite flavors. A full-bodied red, complex and concentrated, with a layered finish. Drink now through 2017. 222 cases made.
Tina Caputo, Wine Review Online
This wine was named for the 10-degree temperature variance that often occurs between Goldeneye’s The Narrows Vineyard in the north to its Confluence Vineyard in the south. It has deep black-fruit aromas, with woody, spicy notes and ripe, juicy fruit flavors. This is a weighty and complex Pinot.
