Dog Point Pinot Noir Marlborough 2009
Deep Ruby color. Aromas of vibrant ripe red fruit imbued with hints of violets together with subtle earthy and smokey nuances supplemented by spicy oak savouriness. Richly flavoured with intense red fruits, well balanced subtle sweetness and spicy well integrated oak leading to a delicate lingering soft finish. Matches duck, cervena, red meats and especially truffled venison and mushroom pie.
Dog Point Vineyard combines the considerable wine-growing experience of Ivan and Margaret Sutherland and James and Wendy Healy. Our philosophy is total involvement by the partners from the vineyard through the winemaking process to marketing regionally distinctive and vineyard expressive wines.
Editorial Reviews for Dog Point Pinot Noir Marlborough
Meaty, cut cherry, bit of tar and mint. Nice weight, decent clarity, a touch chunk, wild berry fruit, a nice bit of stemminess, touch loose and dilute though with fine flavor, not a great finish, a bit dry, lean, perhaps a little minerally but lacks brightness, flavors are excellent.
