A statuesque wine, the 2019 Arcus Pinot Noir boasts sturdy structural pillars and generous flavors. The nose is clean, offering raspberry, zest and pastry notes. Brambly fruits like loganberry greet the palate, along with a signature minerality and notes of graphite tied to the rocky terrain of Arcus Vineyard. Like a plateau set neatly on the horizon, this wine manages to be both sprawling and even-keeled. It’s a wine worthy of reflection—a joy to take in as it unfolds in the glass.
