Wine Enthusiast 92pts: "From a winery owned by Gary and Nancy Andrus of Pine Ridge fame. Intense fruit combines blueberries, black cherries and spicy preserves. Gamy, with hints of leather. The oak is there, but nicely balanced. A very young, forward, concentrated mouthful. Only 478 cases produced. (PG)"
Wine Spectator 92pts: "Smooth, ripe and generous with its fresh raspberry and black cherry flavors, which are harmoniously balanced with hints of spice and well-submerged tannins on the long finish. Has elegance and power. (HS)"
Wine Advocate 91pts: "Produced from .77 tons per acre yields, the medium to dark ruby-colored 1998 Arcus Estate Pinot Noir displays mouth-watering potpourri, red cherry, sweet plum, and spice aromas. This full-bodied, red fruit-packed wine is intense, immensely flavorful, and exceptionally long in the finish. Concentrated layers of cherries, raspberries, touches of strawberries, and hints of blueberries are found in this gorgeously structured yet opulent Pinot Noir."
