Winemaker's Tasting Notes
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.
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
A captivating bouquet weaves together scents of breakfast tea, citrus and barrel. The flavors offer a glorious mix of lemon, yellow plum, pie cherry, chocolate, coffee grounds and black licorice. It's complex and detailed all the way through a lingering finish, with all these diverse components beautifully integrated. Drink now–2025.
94+ Points - Ian Blackburn
Exotic dark fruits, dark cherry cola, coffee, tea, sappy oak note, dense spices - lavishly on display. Rich, textured, hefty, hearty, huge.... yet still Oregon - with great texture, polish and penache. This is a big boy.... a bold expression that reaches for the stars!
