The Archery Summit winery and estate vineyards in the Dundee Hills use sustainable practices and are Live Certified.
The 2018 Summit Vineyard Pinot Noir is soft, with sweet fruit and floral aromas, showing rose water, scorched earth, and subtle vanilla bean qualities. Landing softly on the palate thanks to its round texture, the wine reveals commanding flavors of cola and allspice, with a kiss of salinity. Like an intricate textile weave or the many folds of a terra-cotta tile roof, the wine is cohesive and the singular product of many, many details.
