Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Arcus, meaning "bow" in Latin, describes our 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 2007 Arcus Estate rewards Pinot devotees with an expansive nose, compelling mid-palate, elegant finish and a superior expression of the varietal.

This wine opens with a beautifully aromatic nose of violet, cherry blossom, fennel, sweet cherry and clean earth. The palate is lively, with a bright acidity announcing focused flavors of Bing cherry, white peach and forest floor. A pretty, floral density to the palate lends a subtle, elegant structure, creating a linear and focused whole. Expressive and elegant, the 2007 Arcus Estate is open and vibrant now but can develop with 5 to 8 years of proper cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep red; seductive red berry and floral aromas are deepened by notes of cola and sassafras. Silky, sweet raspberry and candied rose flavors pack a solid punch but are fat-free and gently framed by dusty tannins. Racier strawberry and mineral qualities build on the finish, which is well-focused and refreshingly spicy."
91 Points

"The 07 Arcus Estate Pinot Noir is medium ruby-colored with fragrant perfume of spice box, cedar and red fruits. The wine reveals some tannin upon entry to the palate backed up by a solid core of savory red fruit. The fruit is sweet and ripe and the wine's balance is precise. Another 2 to 3 years of bottle aging will prove beneficial."

Style: Light & Fruity
It was once written Archery Summit was the Rolls Royce of Oregon pinot, I beg to differ on that comment. Just so so and way over priced.
