Aroma: This wine offers intense aromas of blackberry, black cherry, violet and anise seed. Mouth Feel: The palate bursts with flavors of red currant, bright cherry, dried blue fruits, cocoa and earth. The mid palate is layered with complex floral and fruit flavors enveloping a core of minerality. Well integrated tannins and oak lend power and depth to this compelling, fruit driven wine. The long finish persists with notes of cherry and rose hips creating a powerful and complex Pinot Noir which is ready to be enjoyed now or held for the next five to ten years.

Wine SpectatorEffusively fresh and fruit-centered, brimming with fresh plum and cherry flavors, finishing with fleshy texture and fine tannins. Drink now through 2008. 432 cases made.

Wine AdvocateI was surprised by the outstanding depth, concentration, and length of the 2000 Pinot Noir Arcus Estate. Violets, roses, black cherries, and blackberries can be found in this wine's nose as well as in its medium to full-bodied character. Extremely well-made, it is muscular, defined, and loaded with fruit. Projected maturity: 2004-2012.

Wine EnthusiastThis estate's top bottling is well made in this vintage, with a nice medley of ripe berries, cassis, coffee and earth. Quite young and firm, its tart acids are still in control, with some chalky, unresolved tannins on the finish. Time could well improve the score.
