Dog Point Pinot Noir 2017
95 Points- James Suckling
91 Points- Robert Parker
Deep ruby in color. The nose is perfumed with red berry fruits and bright, violet aromas. The fruit is supported by dried herb and characteristic brown spice notes and complex smokiness. Offers a dense core of juicy fruit and bold, fine grained, ripe tannins. A fresh thread of fine acidity emerges and carries the intense flavors through the palate, finished very long. This wine has all the makings of a long lived Marlborough pinot noir.
Food match: Duck and other game birds, red meats, mushroom dishes
