Opulent fruit notes of raspberry coulis, wild strawberry and fresh red cherry arise from the glass of this vintage of our Arcus Estate Pinot Noir, blending with a background of savory nori and cocoa powder. The palate offers generous flavors of concentrated raspberry, Oregon blackcap and blackberry, leading into notes of spice box and lavender incense. A viscous texture creates lasting impressions of ripe black fruit that melt gracefully into the dark chocolate finish.

Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Arcus Vineyard has a perfumed nose of pink peppercorn, fresh pipe tobacco, dried leaves, violets and dusty crushed rock over a core of crushed blueberries and black cherries with bramble berry preserves in the background. Medium-bodied and silky textured, it fills the mouth with blue and black fruits with great layers of exotic spices and earth. It has a firm frame of chewy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing very long and layered.
Decanter: 91
An exquisite fine blend of cherry and currant fruit, raspberry, strawberry, cinnamon Christmas spice, bourbon and strong oak spices. A savoury roasted nut and coffee aroma complete the pleasure.
Wine Enthusiast: 93
Full throttle fruit, wide open with big flavors of black cherry, this red easily carries the barrel highlights (41% new French oak) and herbal components from 40% whole-cluster fermentation. Streaks of coffee, dark chocolate and wet bark roll through polished tannins. This seems bound to improve over the next decade and longer. Editors' Choice.
James Suckling: 93
Attractive, bright and ripe, darker cherries here with freshness that really appeals on the palate. Clarity, cut and detail with black-cherry flavors.
