I bought a bunch of Archery Summit Pinot in 2009-10 based upon advice from friends. They all said my indifference to Pinot Noir would change after experiencing the wines of AS. Well, not so much... overall I have been disappointed, especially at the prices paid for my AS bottles. This is my last bottle. Time has not changed my opinion. This is an average wine. The cork was highly darkened, however the color was a brickish dark cherry; smoky licquorish on the nose, medium bodied........... the rest is disjointed with pieces of heat, dark fruit, oak, weak tannins, light acidity. Overall, rather bland. The finish is rather long, but filled with nothing but heat.
There is a light cherry fruit, but otherwise it's a little too much acid and tartness and is light even for a 2007. Certainly drinkable, but disappointing for a Archery Summit and for a Renegade Ridge.
Drank over two days, first day not impressed, bitter finish, burnt. Second day the fruit returned, and the bitterness faded. I have had this wine many times from other vintages and enjoyed it much more,
