In 1996, building on their tradition of excellence established at Duckhorn Vineyards, and their growing love of Pinot Noir, Dan and Margaret Duckhorn came to Anderson Valley to found Goldeneye. Anderson Valley has since earned acclaim as one of the world’s greatest Pinot Noir regions. Representing the pinnacle of Goldeneye's winemaking portfolio, Ten Degrees is made from only the finest lots, making it a Pinot Noir of unparalleled grace and grandeur!
The 2016 growing season delivered another exceptional vintage to the Anderson Valley. Early and consistent spring rains provided for an excellent fruit set, followed by ideal summer temperatures, which brought the acidity and flavor profiles of the grapes into perfect balance.
Ten Degrees showcases the depth and diversity of the three Anderson Valley estate vineyards. Both opulent and impeccably balanced, it combines the age-worthy structure and lush blueberry and blackberry flavors of Gowan Creek Vineyard with the vibrant strawberry and black cherry elements of Confluence Vineyard. Throughout it all, notes of truffles and earthy minerality from The Narrows Vineyard add depth and complexity, while carrying the wine to a long, sophisticated finish.
