1998 Goldeneye Pinot Noir Anderson Valley

I had two bottles of this and opened one about a month ago and it was totally shot -- deader than a doornail. So I opened this one with a back up bottle ready. Can you say "bottle variation"? This bottle was lovely. Pretty nose of strawberries and warm spice. The fruit is still vibrant on the palate, strawberries, soft tannins and bright acidity. Finishes moderately long with spice and red fruits. Altogether a lovely wine. I'd still drink these if you have any in the near future. B+
