Professional Wine Reviews for Archery Summit Pinot Noir Arcus Estate 2016

Rated 93 by James Suckling
Attractive, bright and ripe, darker cherries here with freshness that really appeals on the palate. Clarity, cut and detail with black-cherry flavors. Drink or hold.
Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Arcus Vineyard has a perfumed nose of pink peppercorn, fresh pipe tobacco, dried leaves, violets and dusty crushed rock over a core of crushed blueberries and black cherries with bramble berry preserves in the background. Medium-bodied and silky textured, it fills the mouth with blue and black fruits with great layers of exotic spices and earth. It has a firm frame of chewy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing very long and layered.

Winery Archery Summit

Region: Oregon

Oregon today has a thriving and unique wine industry, quite unlike that found in other areas of the United States. With a particularly strong organic, vegan and biodynamic wine industry currently gaining world wide attention, Oregon is home to many trailblazers and alternative wineries keen to experiment with the vines which thrive so well in the valleys and mountainsides which characterise their region. Oregon is best known for their Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir varietal grapes, which produce elegant wines packed full of bright and interesting fruit flavours, although a wide range of classic grape varietals grow across the state. With over three hundred wineries currently operating in Oregon, and many more set to open, this is a New World wine region to watch out for now and in the near future.

Country: United States

For three hundred years now, the United States has been leading the New World in wine production, both in regards to quantity and quality. Wine is actually produced in all fifty states across the country, with California leading the way by an enormous margin. Indeed, as much as eighty-nine percent of all wines to come out of the United States are produced in California, where the fertile soils and sloping mountain sides, coupled with the long, hot summers provide ideal conditions for producing high quality, European style red, white and rosé wines. With over a million acres of the country under vine, the United States sits comfortably as the fourth largest wine producer in the world, where imported grape varietals from all over the Old World are processed using a successful blend of traditional and contemporary techniques.

Appellation: Willamette Valley

Oregon is a fascinating state when it comes to United States' wines. Although not as famous as nearby California, Oregon has been consistently lauded for its dedication to quality, experimentation and innovation over recent decades, helping it establish a powerful wine industry with a great reputation. Within Oregon, we find the beautiful wine region of Willamette Valley, a lush a fertile region most commonly associated with the production of high quality Pinot Noir grapes, which are internationally recognized as being responsible for many of the New World's finest red wines. Whilst the Pinot Noir grape is the most commonly grown across the region, the climatic conditions and soil types in Willamette Valley make it an ideal location for the cultivation of many different varietals, making it a very interesting area to explore through wine.
