The Dog Point philosophy of Pinot Noir is simple: “Punch it down twice per day. Take the wine off skins when you start to get astringency and don’t go for a big style.” Straightforward as this may be, the 2010 Pinot Noir is anything but, offering a pale to medium ruby color and fragrant red cherry, violet cinnamon stick and clove aromas with a suggestion of star anise. Medium-bodied and elegantly fruited in the mouth, it offers plenty of fruit layers supported by a low to medium level of finely grained tannins, lively acid and a long finish. Approachable now, it should cellar gracefully to 2017+. 91/100More Reviews
