Closing Notes

With five estate vineyards in the Dundee Hills appellation, Archery Summit champions diverse flavors through a thoughtful combination of grape clones and vines of varying ages. Long-standing relationships with growers throughout Willamette Valley result in fruit that is singular in nature and of the utmost quality. During a memorable wine tasting in their caves, we learned about their unique winemaking process, which includes the use of concrete vats to enhance the texture and purity of fruit flavors in their Pinot Noir wines. The minerality from these vats is evident in the wine, further showcasing Archery Summit’s commitment to producing wines that reflect their vineyard sites with minimal intervention. When I was a car enthusiast, one thing I looked for in a car was when I left it, I would look back at it and say, “Damn that car is sweet”. In wine I look for an emotional response too, If I say “Wow” more than likely it will be memorable…
