Origin New Zealand, Marlborough
Brand Dog Point
Alcohol/vol 13.5%
Deep ruby in color, with perfumed aromas of bright, violet red berry fruits. The fruit is supported by dried herb and characteristic brown spice notes and complex smokiness. The palate consists of 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, finishing very long. This wine has all the markings of a long lived Marlborough pinot noir.

Shows salted caramel, maraschino cherry and wild blackberry and blueberry flavors that are plush and robust, with expressive notes of espresso, forest floor, sage, spice and tobacco lingering on a long, velvety frame. Drink now through 2030.

My favorite Dog Point Pinot Noir to date, the 2019 is seductive and savory, While transparent, it shows the depth of color so typical of this small-berried, high-anthocyanin vintage. Sourced from the clay-loam slopes of the southern valleys, this offers a full, ripe style, plush texture and rounded tannins that are almost cocoa-powdery, with log-fire-like smoky notes derived from 18 months in French oak. A portion of whole clusters in the ferment (30%) brings a lifted floral character to meet the cherry and plum flavors. The lengthy finish provides a fragrant, complex conclusion.

Like Dog Point's whites, this style of Pinot will divide. It's somehow both open-knit and reductive, with mint chocolate and flower stalks leading, and plum and berry fruit behind. Tannins in the mouth feel drying and oak-driven, flattening the fruit a little but not entirely-they still leave room for some succulence and silkiness to shine.
