2017 Ten Degrees Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Goldeneye, 2017 Ten Degrees Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
The pinnacle of our portfolio, Ten Degrees showcases the depth and diversity of our Anderson Valley estate vineyards, offering fragrant layers of blueberry and blackberry, as well as sophisticated notes of redwood forest, moist earth and spice. Though rich and alluring on the palate, a beam of bright acidity adds depth and nuance to the dark berry flavors, with hints of tobacco leaf, anise and pennyroyal revealing themselves as the wine evolves in the glass.
The 2017 season began with plentiful rains that resulted in healthy vines and an excellent crop. After ideal temperate weather throughout the summer, a significant September heat spell ushered in a brisk start to harvest. A return to normal temperatures, combined with thoughtful irrigation, slowed the pace and allowed us to continue picking each site at optimal levels of ripeness. The grapes arrived at our winery in exceptional condition, resulting in complex wines that embody the rustic elegance of great Anderson Valley winemaking.
