2013 Archery Summit Pinot Noir Red Hills Estate, Dundee Hills, Willamette Valley, Oregon
It’s a very good wine but a bit too light to be considered masculine, a characteristic this vineyard has been known for in past vintages. Aromas include the usual berry and earthy decomposing fauna this part of the Willamette Valley is known for—flavors are nimble and tangy cranberry with nuances of dark tea and citrus peel hover in the mix.
Textures are soft on the palate and tannins are tender through the finish. This well made Pinot noir will be a great addition to any table where ham, lamb or salmon will be served for dinner.
Rating: Very Good (89) | $85 | 13.0 % ABV
