Terroir-inspired aromas of pennyroyal and sassafras shine through on the nose, alongside notes of plum, hard cherry candy, clove, nutmeg and earth. The entry is round and silky, offering a broad spectrum of berry flavors, ranging from dark red fruit to blueberries and blackberries, all supported by posh oak and undertones of tobacco, leather and earth. An excellent tannin structure adds to the appealing texture of this wine and leads to a finish supported by refreshing acidity.

Wine Enthusiast

This shows the classically dry structure of Goldeneye, with firm tannins and tart acidity, as well as a fine core of cherry, cola, red currant and oak flavors. Not quite as intense as Goldeneye's ageable vineyard bottlings, but not too far off. Drink now.

Score: 91. —Steve Heimoff, August 01, 2012.

Wine Spectator

Firm, rich and concentrated, yet for all its vibrancy this comes across as better balanced than the winery's single-vineyard bottlings. Smoke and sage notes mark the finish. Drink now through 2021.

Score: 89. —James Laube, September 30, 2012.
