Dog Point Pinot Noir is one of the icons of Marlborough and for good reason. Winemakers Ivan and James first began their journey in the NZ wine game by starting globally-acclaimed winery Cloudy Bay. They are maestro’s at producing superb pinot noir and this wine is no exception. Dark red berry and cherry fruits blend seamlessly with dark herbs, earthiness, raspberry liqueur and liquorice elements, all wrapped up a fine-grained tannin and refined structural bow. Dog Point is responsible for some of Marlborough's best Pinot noir. This release has lifted aromas of dark cherries stone fruit and violets. The palate is rich and complex with a supple velvety texture.

Deep red/purple, an impressive colour for pinot, and the bouquet is toasty, smoky and oak-driven, its fruit shy and reserved, the palate slightly bitter from oak and extraction. This needs years to mellow and soften, but I'm not sure it will ever be very pinoty or charming. There is good, ripe dark cherry pinot fruit buried in here, though. Cellar it! (PS: It needs a big glass)
