Critical Acclaim

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The 2010 Pinot Noir Archery Summit Estate showcases the south-facing, 16 acre winery property and vines planted in 1994 and 1995, of which this limited bottling slightly favors a block of old-fashioned Pommard selection over the site’s predominant Dijon clones. At close to 60%, it received the largest share of new barrels found in any of this estate’s 2010s. Marzipan, vanilla, and maraschino lend a confectionary tone that begins already in the nose, but notes of rose hip, sachet, and black tea offer welcome counterpoint and complexity. A glycerol-slicked, polished palate compliments the richness of ripe cherry fruit and leads to a soothingly lingering finish. This ought to perform well for at least the better part of a decade, though it is one of those among current Archery Summit releases that would have much benefitted from some genuinely saliva-inducing savor.

This has some density of color and flavor, with a strong minty note running through the currant and blackberry fruit, dancing lightly on the finish.
