Bow & Arrow Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2021

Excl. tax

“Scott Frank of Bow & Arrow wines continues his hot streak with today’s bold yet extremely limited Pinot Noir.”

This joyful little bottle is sourced from various sites in the Willamette Valley and is made with carbonic maceration, resulting in a wildly aromatic wine with plenty of tart super crunchy red fruits. Made with minimal intervention, this is pure Oregon "glou glou" at its finest.


Over the last decade, Bow & Arrow has become a darling of the Willamatte Valley. While many of his peers focus on Burgundy grapes (the Willamette has practically become synonymous with Pinot Noir), winemaker Scott Frank makes wines with the grapes of, and in the style of, the Loire Valley. The results are unique, but there's something else too: they feel just right. Which makes sense: although the area's all about Pinot today, Loire varieties (including Melon, Chenin and Gamay) have been planted for decades. Scott got his start with John Paul of Cameron Winery (an absolute master of Oregon Pinot), so he knows his way around a bottle of Pinot— but he always knew he'd work with those Loire varieties. When he does make Pinot it's got more of a Loire Valley vibe, of pure aromatics, fresh fruit, and a silky feel, rather than the more typical, earthier vibe of Oregonian "aspirational Burgundy." These are delicious wines that are fun to drink. They're a wonderful reminder of how much there still is to learn and discover about even America's most famous wine regions.
