Nick Onischuk Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

The Dog Point Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011 is simply excellent! This wine features aromas of cherry, raspberry, spice and earthiness. A medium bodied wine with a smooth and long finish. A must try! Tasted May 2014 (94/100)
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Deep purple color with notes of violet, cassis, blackberry, spice, cherry, herb and raspberry.

On the palate this wine is nerve, silky, medium-bodied and long.

Pair it with Indian dishes or with BBQ.

Serve it at 15-16 degrees.

I suggest to pour it in carafe 30 minutes before the service.

Ready to drink but can be aged 3-5 years.
The grapes for this nervy New Zealand Pinot Noir are estate grown. Polished tannins, tart cherry fruit and mouth-watering acidity. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
