Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Lightly textured with juicy palate impressions, our 2016 Archer’s Edge Pinot Noir boasts candied fruit flavors of cherry, raspberry and pomegranate. Its fragrant spice notes lean toward cocoa powder and red velvet cake with subtle earth nuances accentuated by the interplay between clonal selections and the basalt soils in which the fruit is grown. This lovely, south-facing slope represents a culmination of insight gained from over two decades of winegrowing.
Vineyards
Relatively young compared to our other estate vineyards, Archer’s Edge is a small parcel nestled between Renegade Ridge and Summit Vineyards. It represents a culmination of insight gained from two decades of winegrowing, and as we continue to nurture its growth we look forward to witnessing the development of its distinctive voice. Planted to Pommard and Dijon clones, the grapes from this vineyard demonstrate youthful, fresh fruit qualities with bright red tones and a distinct floral note on the nose.
Winemaking
Fruit for the 2016 vintage was hand picked from September 12th to 15th. The fruit was hand sorted and soaked cold for five to ten days, after which native yeast fermentation was allowed to proceed under temperature-controlled conditions in stainless steel open top fermentors. During primary fermentation, tanks were punched down up to three times per day. After limited post-fermentation maceration, the wine was sent via gravity to 52% new French oak barrels and aged for 7 months prior to bottling.
