Wine Advocate 92 points - Archery Summit?s 2011 Pinot Noir Arcus Estate is another of their wines of this vintage to evince blue fruit character ? blueberry and boysenberry, initially tinged with sandalwood and cardamom ? that I don?t often find in this vintage. Fresh ginger and black pepper offer invigorating inflection, yet don?t detract at all from the underlying soothing influence of a polished, silken texture. A humus-like note and tincture of iodine contribute some darkness and intrigue ? and a hint of caramel complimentary sweetness ? to a lusciously long finish. Winemaker Chris Mazepink, incidentally ? who was not responsible for any of the 2011s here, and was less enthusiastic about the vintage in general than other growers and vintners I interviewed ? says this Arcus Estate reminds him more of a 2010 in its combination of polish and volume with energy and structure, and he thinks it will reveal a site-typical floral dimension after a few years in bottle. I certainly wouldn?t hesitate to follow it through at least 2020.  (Oct 2013)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Dark and expressive, with black tea and cedar overtones to the currant and blackberry flavors, finishing smooth and inviting on a medium-weight frame. Drink now through 2018.H.S. (Dec 4 2013)
