Tasting Notes

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Winemaker Zach Rasmuson did not produce a Narrows Vineyard bottling in 2005. Instead, those grapes went into the regular Goldeneye, to its great benefit. The wine is particularly rich and powerful in cherry pie filling, black raspberry, mocha, Dr. Pepper and smoky oak flavors, with a gorgeous, mouth-filling texture that's dramatic on the finish." 91 points and two stars from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "Rich oak combines nicely with equally rich cherry-like fruit and suggestions of dried flowers in the nose of this outgoing effort, and the wine's flavors follow suit with sweetly spiced cherries running their length. It is firmly balance but fully expressed and easy to taste even now, and it will make very fine drinking over the next several years while its vineyard-designate siblings age into their best.(June 2008) Goldeneye winemaker Zach Rasmuson crafts cool-climate pinot noirs from the Anderson Valley that reflect the unique growing conditions of the Mendocino Coast. Using small-lot techniques, he has created a well-balanced, medium-bodied wine in 2005 that is wonderfully satisfying. A tease of fruit and spice reminiscent of apple-cherry cobbler entice on the nose. On the palate, notes of vanilla and spice work to lift the focused strawberry, plum and cherry fruit. Delicate and compelling, this wine has an intriguing depth of flavor and structure that will make this a delicious bottle for the next 5-10 years.
