ARCHERY SUMMIT Pinot Noir 'Arcus Estate' 2014

The most compelling of the excellent 2014 releases from Archery Summit is the 'Arcus Estate' which consistently has been one of their most impressive bottlings since I started tasting there more than a decade ago. This is up there with the best 'Arcus Estate' wines that I have tasted. Having a deep core, the wine starts with perfumed aromatics of black cherry, black raspberry, black truffle, white pepper and black plum. There are flavors reminiscent of black cherry, black truffle oil and black raspberry. The weight and balance of this wine is simply gorgeous. There is a lovely purity of fruit in this bottling that shows through to the lingering finish. Try to avoid drinking this exceptional Pinot for at least another two years. (Best 2018-2035) - July, 2016 (OB)
