Natalie's Score: 94/100

This medium-bodied red wine is liquid lovely! Juicy, fleshy bright cherries and dark chocolate dance across your senses with this pinot noir. Ultra-smooth... like satin. Hedonistic. Amazingly great price for a flagship wine. Please make me some planked salmon and top up my glass. Pinot noir is New Zealand's benchmark red wine and it shows why in this wine. Highly recommended.

Pinot Noir food pairings: planked salmon, roast beef, turkey, pork tenderloin, coq au vin.

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I enjoyed this Pinot Noir from New Zealand. Medium-bodied and full of flavor. One of the things I love most about a Pinot from New Zealand is how aromatic they are. Juicy raspberries on the nose with some earthy notes. On the palate it was smooth with balanced acidity and a nice finish. Pinot Noir is one of the food-friendliest wines you can buy and goes with a wide array of foods including chicken, pork, turkey and seafood.
Cloudy Bay put New Zealand on the wine map for its Sauvignon Blanc, but this Pinot Noir holds its own and deserves its own shining place in the wine world. - Community Wine Reviews
