Arcadian Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands Pisoni Vineyard 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Offers up effusive dried cherry, cherry zinger tea, dried leaf and sassafrass notes. Decidedly bigger in the mouth with intense flavors of meaty fruit and excellent balance that belies the weight. Soft and almost voluptuous in the mouth though with substantial tannins that give the finish a touch of a murky feel, ends with a touch a vanilla on the finale. Lovely if still a touch young and finely straddle the new world/old world line. 90pts

he idea... run a fun family winery that produces great wine! Situated in the heart of Upstate New York's Finger Lakes Wine Country, Arcadian Estate Winery is located on Seneca Lake, near Watkins Glen. Folks find us to be a fun winery on Seneca Lake's west side...we encourage you to take a drive out and enjoy our friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Arcadian's main building is a 170 year old barn that is home to our winery and tasting room, gift shop and gallery which features our artist of the month. If you like, you can sample some of our wines around our main bar or have a specialized sampling with one of our staff of knowledgeable wine servers for a group of your friends or family. Wines can also be purchased by the glass or bottle to enjoy at your leisure. No matter what time of the year there is always something going on at Arcadian. If you are visiting us on the weekend you may stumble across any variety of entertainment possibilities ranging from visiting musical artists and DJ's to an array of unique events. Arcadian is a great place to find the perfect gift for the wine lovers in your life. Be sure to take time to look through our collection of gourmet foods including Stonewall Kitchen sauces and gifts, Bisco salsas, Cuba cheeses and chocolates as well as Love of Lizzy candles and a variety of country crafts, and distinctive gifts. Don't forget to bring with you your very own wine story so that you can take home a strand of our ever popular mardi gras beads. :) There is a little something for everyone at Arcadian! We hope you'll visit with us soon. Read less
