Winemaker Notes

Dark, opulent fruit notes of black plum, dried black cherries and black mission fig arise from the glass ofthis vintage of our Arcus Estate Pinot Noir, blending with a background of deep violet florals and cleanforest floor. The palate offers generous flavors of dark, concentrated berry, Oregon blackcap and blackraspberry, leading into notes of cacao and orange pekoe tea. Lasting impressions of ripe black fruit meltgracefully into the dark chocolate finish.

Wine Enthusiast
Complex, classy winemaking is evident from the first sniff to the final sip. Savory notes of green tea and clean earth complement a terroir-driven wine. The notes and nuances pile on—flowers and fruits, cherry and cassis, with a whiff of barnyard and undergrowth. The lingering, expressive finish is already boggling, and seems sure to continue to evolve gracefully through 2025–2030.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Firm in texture, with focused cherry and spice flavors weaving between the tannins, finishing with a chile pepper bite. Aims for majesty, but will need time to achieve it. Best after 2016.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Arcus Estate Pinot Noir is the largest single-vineyard bottling from Archery Summit, planted in a bowl that holds the heat. This was picked October 8-18 and aged for 11 months in 38% new French oak. It has an exuberant bouquet with blackcurrant pastilles, orange rind and even a touch of marmalade, nicely focused and gaining vigor in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, a light saline touch, hints of white pepper coming through toward the finish with just a touch of glycerine that is accentuated with aeration. It offers moderate complexity but also a very long, spicy finish that lingers long after the wine has departed. This is one of the better releases from Archery Summit, though it comes with that three-digit price tag.
