Review: 2010 Archery Summit Pinot Noir Premier Cuvee Wilamette Valley
A classic Oregon Pinot, with bright cherry fruit, a hint of fizziness when freshly poured, and the suggestion of damp earth on the nose as it opens up in the glass. As Pinot Noir goes, this is a truly lovely expression of the grape: Lush, fruity, with a dash of herbs and a crisp and refreshing finish. Not overly challenging — like a beginner Burgundy — but I can’t think of a better “beginner” wine to try.
