2010 Archery Summit Premier Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $35.99. 100% estate grown and estate bottled. Sourced from five vineyards. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the bottle. At this early stage this wine is dominated by oak and tannin. Aromas of black cherries and coffee-scented oak. Soft in the mouth with a gentle cherry flavor, largely buried in oak and tannin. Tasted the next day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the lovely fruit core had begun to emerge and the oak was better integrated. Give this wine a few years in the cellar. Good.
