2013 Archery Summit Arcus Estate Pinot Noir
Arcus, meaning ‘bow’ in Latin, describes our 39 acre estate vineyard that wraps around both sides of a small valley in the heart of the Dundee Hills. Capturing the distinctive terroir of this single vineyard, the 2013 Arcus Estate rewards Pinot Noir devotees with an expansive nose, compelling mid-palate, elegant finish, and a superior expression of the varietal.
Dark, opulent fruit notes of black plum, dried black cherries and black mission fig arise from the glass of this vintage of our Arcus Estate Pinot Noir, blending with a background of deep violet florals and clean forest floor. The palate offers generous flavors of dark, concentrated berry, Oregon blackcap and black raspberry, leading into notes of cacao and orange pekoe tea. Lasting impressions of ripe black fruit melt gracefully into the dark chocolate finish.
