2018 Archery Summit Archer's Edge Vineyard Pinot Noir
Archer’s Edge is the gateway to the estate, cradled in a south-facing pocket of pristine land leading the way to the winery drive. Rich resident soils and clonal diversity add layers to an already diverse batch of blocks. An old soul of sorts, this site is poised between youthful freshness and sophistication, showing fruity and savory components.
Our 2018 Archer’s Edge Pinot Noir offers bouquet brimming with iconic northern Willamette Valley aromatics. Woodsy, rustic and spicy, the nose is pulled straight from a drizzly hike though an old growth forest, with hints of bramble, candied berries, mushroom, and lavender stem. The ruby hue captures the eye while the palate wanders smoothly into the dark fruit spectrum, with flavors like plum, black cherry, and fig. An enveloping wine, the Archer’s Edge is simultaneously expansive and refined.
