With strawberry rhubarb driving the nose and a palate made of raspberry and currant, the 2018 Arcus Pinot Noir is tied tightly to the red end of the fruit spectrum. The fruit is sourced from our historic Dundee Hills vineyard, fit with volcanic soils and diverse vineyard rows—a striking setting not far from our winery and tasting room.

This wine explores every corner of our cellar, having been fermented in stainless steel, concrete, and wood. As a result, the Pinot Noir is dynamic, with a ceaseless and infectious energy that can be felt with every taste. A persistent finish reminds of the intriguing depth of the 2018 growing season.

Capturing the distinctive terroir of this single vineyard, the Arcus Vineyard rewards Pinot Noir devotees with an expansive nose, compelling midpalate, elegant finish, and a superior expression of the variety. The 2017 Arcus flows across the palate in an effortless, enveloping fashion. With pronounced minerality drawn from age-old volcanic soils, the wine from the steeply set, gorgeously situated vineyard is completely captivating in flavor. Compelling fragrances of tobacco, and wild spearmint lead to a lean, umami, focused yet dramatic flavor profile, filled with stone fruit and a distinctive chalky texture.
