Archery Summit Premier Cuvée Pinot Noir

The vines of Archery Summit Estate, which surround the winery at the south end of the Dundee Hills, produce a Pinot Noir that is consistently among America’s highest-rated wines. Planted during the same two years that the 100 percent gravity-flow winery was built, the flagship vineyard is comprised of a select mix of rootstocks and clones.

This wine opens with effusive floral and spice aromas characteristic of the 2011 vintage. Present are the lifted perfumes of hyacinth, linden blossom and carnation along with spicy Satsuma mandarin, tea tree, fennel and crushed boysenberry. The palate is expansive, expressive and also connective; showing a completeness and comfort within its own skin. On the palate there are notes of passion fruit, violet pastille and tayberry, along with hints of cinnamon stick and a flinty minerality bundled in a succulent, mouthwatering middle. The tannins are matte with a velveteen quality and the finish is all freshness, lingering and clean.
