Goldeneye is the Anderson Valley branch of Napa’s Duckhorn, and Gowan Creek has routinely been a favorite among their single vineyard Pinots. Brooding and opulent, it matches blackberry, anise tones with more earthen flavors - tilled soil and mushroom caps. Meaty and gratifying.

2005 and could have easily gone another ten years. Excellent fruit and soft tannins.

From 3L. Silky and holding up just fine. Loads of Gowan's trademark black cherry compote.

Showing well at the moment but would benefit from a little rest in the cellar...if you can resist the temptation to open!
