Tasting Notes For Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2020
The 2020 Anderson Valley growing season produced one of the most exceptional vintages in Goldeneye’s three-decade history. A dry winter and cool, wet spring delayed budbreak until the first week of April. This was followed by ideal temperate weather in late spring and summer, which ensured an excellent fruit set and veraison, as well as a long, measured growing season.
Showcasing the rich diversity of the Anderson Valley, this exuberant wine displays fresh, enticing aromas of juicy raspberry, summer strawberry and red plum, as well as hints of bramble, black tea, anise, sweet saddle leather and a touch of salinity. On the palate, bright acidity and firm, chewy tannins converge to create a supple texture that accentuates the Bing cherry and blackberry pie flavors, with sophisticated notes of nutmeg, cardamom and savory umami emerging on the finish to create a sumptuous and cerebral drinking experience.
