Archery Summit Premier Cuvee Pinot Noir 2005
Deep ruby red in color, the 2005 Premier Cuvée opens with lifted aromas of red berries, violets, vanilla and a hint of savory spice. Black cherry, currant, pomegranate and blueberry notes mingle on the palate with mulling spices, anise and clean earth. The wine is precocious and bright with layers of mineral, flint and spice surrounding a seductive black cherry core. There is balance and good concentration here; tannins are rich but restrained, revealing a wine with depth of flavor and clean lines.
Elegant and focused, this wine is ready for enjoyment now, however may improve with proper cellaring over the next five to eight years.
