Archery Summit Arcus Pinot Noir 2017
Dundee Hills - Arcus, meaning bow in Latin, describes our 39 acre estate vineyard that wraps around both sides of a small valley in the heart of the Dundee Hills. Capturing the distinctive terroir of this single vineyard, the 2017 Arcus Vineyard rewards Pinot Noir devotees with an expansive nose, compelling mid-palate, elegant finish, and a superior expression of the varietal.
Fruit for the 2017 Arcus Vineyard Pinot Noir was hand picked September 29th. After handpicking and hand-sorting, fermentation was then allowed to proceed under temperature-controlled conditions in open-top stainless steel and concrete fermenters. During primary fermentation, tanks were
punched down up to two times per day. Aged for 15 months in the barrel, this Pinot Noir was fermented primarily with whole-cluster fruit for added depth and character.

rewards Pinot Noir devotees with an expansive nose, compelling midpalate, elegant finish, and a superior expression of the variety. The 2017 Arcus flows across the palate in an effortless, enveloping fashion. With pronounced minerality drawn from age-old volcanic soils, the wine from the steeply set, gorgeously situated vineyard is completely captivating in flavor. Compelling fragrances of tobacco, and wild spearmint lead to a lean, umami, focused yet dramatic flavor profile, filled with stone fruit and a distinctive chalky texture.
