This is Bow & Arrow’s flagship bottling, and it’s always a single-vineyard expression of Gamay and Pinot Noir a la the Loire Valley’s Cheverny region. It always tends to lean toward more Pinot than Gamay (this is the Willamette Valley after all), and the grapes are fermented separately and differently before being blended at bottling. Johan Vineyards is a cool, windy site and as a consequence the Gamay produces protective compounds in the skins that express dried rose petals, white pepper and pencil shaving characteristics in most vintages and 2020 is most certainly one of them.

Over the last decade, Bow & Arrow has become a darling of the Willamette 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.
