K&L Notes

94 points Wine Front: "Cherry, mint nougat, plum and aromatic herbs. It's medium bodied, fleshy and full of flavour, grainy tannin shapes it up, plump fruit with cool acidity, and a long tannin dusted finish. Lovely wine. Delightful." (02/2017)

    Rather than repeat the superlatives about this wine that the critics have already put in ink I'll simply tell you that I secured every single case of this wine I could put my hands on. I tasted it about 12 months ago and have been tracking its progress from NZ ever since. It's a stunning wine on every level and confirms that: (A) Marlborough can make world-class Pinot Noir. And: (B) Dog Point are one of the benchmark producers in the entire southern hemisphere. This is meticulously crafted Pinot Noir from some of most perfectly situated vineyards in the country, farmed under certified organic methods. It combines the vibrancy and succulence of fruit that is New Zealand's trademark and intertwines it with some of the exotic, alluring, savory, earthy qualities that makes Pinot Noir so evocative and enthralling...guess I couldn't avoid the superlatives entirely!
    Top Value! Drink from 2017 to 2027

    The incredible scores this Pinot Noir has received are well deserved in a wine such as this. This Pinot is incredibly soft and supple and is sure to be a favorite of any Pinot lover. It is velvety in mouthfeel with deep fruit and a slight woodsy character. It has a well-balanced nature and a long lasting mouthfeel. I truly feel this wine would please most palates with its approachable yet sophisticated style.

    I would have guessed Cote de Beaune had I tasted this blind: lots of baking spice, hints of dried herbs and black tea, with dusty tannins and dark black cherry on the finish. The more and more we get access to great pinot noir from New Zealand, the more I think the aromatics and flavors continue to blur the border between Marlborough and Burgundy. In the case of this Dog Point, it's everything I generally head to France for, just more lifted, vibrant, and ready to drink in its youth. All the complexity with none of the wait - but it will still evolve nicely!
