Duckhorn could not escape the smoke in Anderson Valley the summer of 2008. Most premium Pinot Noir producers bulked out their Anderson Valley fruit in 2008. The smoke taint dominates this wine with acrid aromas and sharpness on the tongue. I wish I did not have two more bottles to suffer through. The second label "Migration" faired slightly better and have improved slightly with time. I'm not sure the Goldeneye will improve with more time.
