Archery Summit

Deep garnet in color, the 2009 Premier Cuvée opens with heady aromas of black raspberry, spiced cherry, cassis and fennel. Also present are perfumed notes evocative of cedar closets, spring lilacs, wet stone and clean forest floor. On the palate captivating flavors of Oregon black caps, sweet tamarind and blueberries mingle with hints of violets, black salt licorice and earthy truffle. This wine is unctuous and generous in the mouth yet finessed by an acidity which keeps it vibrant and lively. The finish is long and persists with an elegant nod towards dark chocolate and cherries.

Wine Enthusiast

This is the most affordable Pinot from Archery Summit, a blend of multiple clones and vineyards, and it's a gem. Full and fruity from the moment you pull the cork, it hits you with flavors of ripe strawberry, blackberry and black cherry, a big mouthful of lush fruit flavor. The finish brings on hints of truffle, licorice and dark chocolate.

Score: 91. —Paul Gregutt, March 01, 2012.

Wine Advocate

The entry-level 2009 Pinot Noir Premier Cuvee is a blend of all five of the estate vineyards. It sports a pleasing perfume of red and black fruits, cedar, spice box, and rose petal. Savory and smooth-textured on the palate, it is a flavorful offering that displays a sense of elegance. Drink it over the next 6-7 years.
