Not rich, not herbal, but a nice blend of the two aromatically. Tar, ripe black cherries, red plum, herbal twang and just a kiss of smoked game. Lively and acidic on the palate, even at 7yrs of age. Gained darker and more dense fruits as it opened, with added iron, tart red fruits and an herbal spice driven finish. Hardly any signs of age here, so no worries on holding. Still picking up some heat, so I’d imagine this has another 2-3yrs before it’s integrated at its peak! Still gaining steam! Impressive. Thank you for introducing me to this winery, @David L ! I need to seek out more OR Pinots!

This isn't what you'd expect from a Pinot from this region. I usually find Pinots from this region to be too thin for my taste. Will be working this into my rotation.

A monster- dark, stanky, meaty, dense. A lot to handle but great wine nonetheless. I'd like to see it in a cooler year. 2012 vintage.

12' Archery Summit Ribbon Ridge Looney Vineyard Pinot Noir. For a 5 year old bottle of Pinot, it showing very little age.

Black cherry, ripened raspberry, dark chocolate notes. The tannins moderate , but approachable. Drinking now? Holding it for another year 👍. I think this is going to get better. 8/10 great years in it.
@Martin G Rivard Your going to love it. Pull the cork 1 hour before serving it. Edit- 94+!points😳

Tastes like the best of Russian River; intense; no Oregon push over, this is a Pinot for food and friends
