2009 Section 94

Very nice nose, intense with gently smoky notes, nuts, almonds, yellow fruit and avery fine oak treatment. The palate is remarkably structured, with a really fine combination of ripe fruit, a zesty acidity, creamy texture, and a very long and lingering aftertaste. Add to this a balance and complexity many of its peers were missing. Really nice! 18/20

2009 Pinot Noir

It seemed inevitable that a partnership between Cloudy Bay’s ex-winemaker and viticulturist would make cracking wine. This is one of Dog Point’s best Pinot Noirs yet. It’s a seriously good wine with excellent cellaring potential.
