(2010 Vintage) Our Red Hills Estate is a 26 acre vineyard in the Dundee Hills AVA. This gentle south facing slope reaches in elevation from 400 to 600 feet and is composed of Basaltic ‘Jory’ soils. Vines here range from 20 year old self-rooted Pommard planted to 800 vines per acre to Dijon clones planted to 4800 vines per acre. Farming is meticulous utilizing sustainable practices and produces one of our finest vineyard designated wines.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2005 Vintage) Dark, dense and brooding, but not one that ever conveys a convincing sense of fruit, this tight, tannin-framed working shows the toughness that we have come to anticipate from Archery Summit Pinots. While its rough edges are likely to be smoothed with the passage of time, we do not expect aging to bring it any more fruit.
