2014 Goldeneye Ten Degrees Anderson Valley Pinot Noir – 98 Points

Looks like I saved the best for last with this year’s stable of Pinot Noirs from Goldeneye. While it’s fun to showcase fruit sources in vineyard designated wines, it’s even more fun from a consumer point of view to witness the artistry of a great winemaker in creating a work from the best lots of the fruit sources available to them. This vintage of Ten Degrees shows Michael Accurso’s skill in a glorious mix of red and black fruit notes, with earth, spice and wildflower accents that shine through structured acidity with a weighty lightness (yes, that’s right) that keeps you engaged as the layers unfold. A truly special wine.

2014 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir - 93 Points Editors' Choice

Beautifully integrated oak spice and a deep well of fruit flavors combine in this richly complex and layered wine. It’s medium to full in body, supple and mouthfilling in texture, and brings a great array of classic aromas to the table. Dark cherry, forest floor, cedar and a hint of wood smoke meld into a feast of flavor.

2014 Goldeneye Ten Degrees Anderson Valley Pinot Noir - 94 Points Cellar Selection

Rich, but also subtle, this full-bodied wine smells like wood smoke, baking spices, ripe plums and red cherries, then brings mulled cherry and cinnamon flavors on a broad, velvety texture. It offers nuances of oak in the spices, and a confident sense of pure fruit behind it all, giving this bottling a slight edge over the other 2014 Pinots from Goldeneye. It will be best after 2021.

2014 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Gowan Creek Vineyard - 91 Points

Substantial and smoky, this full-bodied wine has a vivid oak component. Wood smoke and toasted-bread aromas meet ripe black-cherry flavors on the palate, plus clove and cinnamon on the finish. It’s delicious in a bold, rich style.

2014 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Confluence Vineyard – 96 Points

Rich damp earth and spice aromas give way to deep black cherry fruit and toasty oak in this vineyard-designate bottling. There’s serious flavor following here, yet it’s lighter in body and livelier in texture than you might expect from such boldly flavored wine. I’d lean toward something on the beefy side as a pairing partner.”

2014 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Split Rail Vineyard – 96 Points

One of Goldeneye’s weightier offerings from the vintage, and one that shows bold savory character, with damp earth, mushroom and brown spice enhancing rich black cherry fruit and spice. The rich texture at mid palate belies the acidity that shows in the finish and keeps things on the lithe side of the bigger style. There’s a lot to showcase in the region, and Goldeneye’s portfolio covers a lot of bases.

Beautifully structured, this layered Pinot Noir is another stunning vintage from the Gowan Creek Vineyard, one of Goldeneye's finest. It shows notes of black cherry and wood spice.

Uncork a perfect weekend in Anderson Valley

A seated wine tasting at Goldeneye will run about $15 per person. That allows you to taste wines from the warmest eastern parts and coolest coastal parts of the valley side by side. It’s a genuinely informative experience because the transverse valley is about 10 degrees cooler at the coastal end than it is farther inland.
