Archery Summit Red Hills Estate Pinot Noir 2007
Vivid red. Spicy, vaguely medicinal aromas of black currant, cherry and flowers, with a touch of musky underbrush. Then sappy, sweet and youthfully structured, with excellent verve to the bitter cherry, menthol and anise flavors. This youthfully taut wine really stains the palate, finishing vibrant and long, with strong mineral snap and a late note of vanilla.
The 07 Pinot Noir is a smooth-textured wine with plenty of sweet cherry and raspberry fruit, a touch of tannin, and a lengthy, flavorful finish.

A multifaceted and highly reputable sub-region of Sonoma...
A multifaceted and highly reputable sub-region of Sonoma, Dry Creek Valley is responsible for a wide range of wine styles both red and white. The warm and welcoming appellation is home to a number of family-owned vineyards and wineries that place a strong emphasis on sustainable farming practices. One of the smallest AVAs in California, Dry Creek Valley has a winning combination of ideal geography and climate. Fertile, well-drained soils create concentrated varietal character while long, warm days bookended by cool nights allow grapes to reach full ripeness while retaining acidity and balance.
[Zinfandel] reigns supreme here, often grown on vines aged 35 to 100 or older, taking on a powerful, voluptuous character favored by fans of the variety. Sauvignon Blanc, the valley’s signature white grape, also performs exceptionally well. Many other varieties grow comfortably here, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Rhône varieties, and Italian varieties. [Petite Sirah] and [Carignan] are commonly blended with Zinfandel.
