Arcus, meaning "bow" in Latin, describes Archery Summit's estate vineyard that wraps around both sides of a small valley in the heart of the Dundee Hills. Capturing the distinctive terroir of this single vineyard, the 2004 Arcus Estate rewards Pinot Noir devotees with an expansive nose, compelling mid-palate, elegant finish, and a superior expression of true Pinot Noir.
This wine opens with vibrant aromas of blue fruits, violets, black cherries and bacon fat. The palate soars with focused flavors of cherry, currant and cassis, and the natural acidity along with integrated tannin serve to support this wine's abundant personality. Expressive, stylish and complex, the 2004 Arcus Estate will benefit from three to five years of proper cellaring.
