Attractive, earthy and spicy aromas are wound seamlessly into bright, red and darker cherries. This is complex and fragrant with dialed-in oak. The palate has impressively intense red-cherry flavors with succulent acidity and smooth, fluid tannins. Composed finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap. Tasted: Nov 2020; Rating 94 Points; Nick Stock
Of the new releases from Dog Point this wine was the pick. But if you plan on drinking it young give it some air, either in the glass or a decanter to enjoy all it has to offer. Bright mid cherry red in colour, it opens up with aromas of the forrest – spice, earth, truffle and undergrowth providing a savoury start. But then pretty aromatic fruits start to emerge – beetroot, dark cherry, star anise and potpourri all underpinned by well chosen oak. It is beautifully complex and, most of all, superbly balanced. The palate continues on that earthy, brooding line with tobacco, stalk and spice offset by fleshy dark cherry fruits. It is almost surprisingly tannic with strong structure and also a meaty/funky edge on a long and supple finish. Delicious and great value Kiwi Pinot.

Supple, vibrant, organic pinot noir with cherry, violet, blackcurrant leaf, spice, anise, and subtle nutty oak flavours. High-energy wine with impressive purity. An elegant and youthful pinot noir with obvious cellaring potential. Date Tasted: Nov 2020; Rating: 95 Points; Bob Campbell; The Real Review
