2006 Goldeneye Gowan Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley, CA

I can't say enough about the quality of Goldeneye Pinots.  I paired this wine with roasted chicken, broccolini and mashed potatoes and it went very well.    Great nose and fruity mouthful and boy can you taste the alcohol.  Pulled straight from label on the bottle this wine is noted as having an "inky depth and robust untamed fruit flavors".  It's very inky.  Wine notes can be found on the Goldeneye site here.

As you'll see on the site, the Gowan Creek Vineyard lies in the heart of the Anderson Valley in Northern California where it sees considerably cooler temps from coastal fog.  The vineyard is actually planted to eight diffferent clones of Pinot Noir, each tailored to a specific site and soil type (from their site).  The site describes this region as producing "powerful" and "expressive" wine and I couldn't agree more.  Winery map.
