At the winery, nose of red cherry fruit, red currants, and a hint of dust rising from a dirt road on a hot summer day, more of the same on the palate, intense red cherry fruit taste, well structured, needs two years to peak, medium/big body, long, fruity finish.

2006 Goldeneye (Duckhorn Vineyards) Pinot Noir Ten Degrees

Anderson Valley more

7/1/2015 - bestdamncab Likes this wine: 91 points

Nose of bacon, tea leaves, sage, fig and plum fruit, and barnyard, more of the same on the palate, almost elegant and mouth filling, tasty with the grilled chicken, medium/big body, and a long, flavorful finish and wonderful aftertaste. I suspect this was a better wine four years ago. Not quite as rich as the previous bottle a month ago. A $90 auction bottle bought to compare to the newest release, pricey and worth it.
