I recently traveled to Willamette Valley to experience Oregon’s take on my favorite kind of wine, pinot noir. While visiting the beautiful vineyards at Archery Summit Winery, I had the chance to fully experience the complex beauty of pinot noir…by blending my own bottle of wine!
With access to five premier 2009 Archery Summit wines, beakers, measuring cups and worksheets, I went to work tasting (and spitting) the different wines. With 1000 mL to work with, I chose a final blend of the following:
- 390 mL Archery Summit Looney Estate
- 100 mL Archery Summit Arcus Estate
Winemaker Anna Matzinger described my blend as “bold, brooding and mysterious.” I wonder what my taste in wine says about me?
Have you ever tried Archery Summit wine? What kind of wine is your favorite? Leave me a comment and let me know.
