Archery Summit 2011 Archery Summit Estate Pinot Noir was rated 94 points in the April issue of Wine Enthusiast!
“Truly elegant, this displays the complexity of vines now hitting maturity at almost 20 years of age. Spice, clove, herb and cherry flavors mix with a dash of truffle. The lower alcohol and juicy acidity of the vintage contribute to a lingering, textural, complex and beautifully balanced finish.” — P.G.
Archery Summit 2011 Archer’s Edge Estate Pinot Noir was rated 93 points in the April issue of Wine Enthusiast!
“This young wine bursts with vitality, from the tart and tangy mix of red fruits, highlighted with bracing citrus flavors, to the peppery spices and tea-flavored tannins. The flavors wrap together with a lush cola texture, and the length and balance suggest that it can develop much like a graceful Burgundy.” — P.G.
Archery Summit 2011 Arcus Estate Pinot Noir was rated 93 points in the April issue of Wine Enthusiast!
“Restrained and elegant, this deeply flavored Pinot Noir takes a masculine turn with threads of iron filings, earth and herb. The blueberry and plum fruit flavors are set against drying tannins. As with all Archery Summit Pinots, the length and balance are outstanding.” — P.G.
Archery Summit 2012 Ab Ovo Pinot Gris was rated 92 points in the April issue of Wine Enthusiast!
“The Ab Ovo is principally fermented in a concrete egg, as students of Latin might easily surmise. Richly detailed and layered, the wine displays impeccable balance, ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavors and countering acidity. The egg seems to bring out some additional minerality also.” — P.G.
Archery Summit 2011 Looney Vineyard Pinot Noir was rated 92 points in the April issue of Wine Enthusiast!
“The only Ribbon Ridge cuvée from Archery Summit, it makes a welcome addition to the lineup. Tart cranberry and pie-cherry fruit, citrus flesh and rind, hints of marjoram and Italian herbs combine seamlessly. Superb balance and excellent length make this a fine candidate for cellaring until 2022.” — P.G.
Archery Summit 2011 Renegade Ridge Estate Pinot Noir was rated 92 points in the April issue of Wine Enthusiast!
“Fruit from this 12-acre site has a well-rounded aspect, with nuanced flavors of pomegranate, marionberry, black cherry and cola. Hints of game and cured meat come through also, and the mouthfeel is sleek and wiry. It’s drinking well but could certainly be cellared through 2024.” — P.G.
Archery Summit 2011 Red Hills Estate Pinot Noir was rated 90 points in the April issue of Wine Enthusiast!
“Quite tart, with a mix of cranberry and strawberry fruit, this rather delicate Pinot Noir is a fine reflection of the strengths of this lighter vintage. Perfectly balanced, it shows surprising length and complexity, from the raspberry aromatics on through a lightly toasty finish.” — P.G.
