Natalie's Score: 93/100
This medium-bodied New Zealand red wine is satin smooth and tickles the senses. Juicy, fleshy bright cherries and dark chocolate dance across your senses with this pinot noir. Ultra-supple and sensuous. Amazingly great price for a flagship wine. 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. Please make me some seared tuna 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.

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Bright garnet red with fragrant tart cherry, red plum, earth and milk chocolate aromas. The palate shows beautifully integrated flavours of red fruit, earth, baking spice, milk chocolate and forest floor, smooth and mouth-watering, with elegant and fragrant finish. Great gift wine or to keep on hand for the holidays.

Fine, delicate and delicious! Calling for juicy cranberry and cherry aromas with savoury, tangy fruit and baking spice flavours? It's here! Way to go Cloudy Bay! Lovely acidity, fine balance, long finish! I'm loving it! Tasted Dec 2016 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Very nice, light-bodied Pinot Noir with a little Burgundian flair. A touch vegetal on my first nose but quickly gives way to red berries, leather, underbrush, and gentle floral notes. Smooth with cleansing acidity and a lingering cherry cola finish. Might be a little tough to convince at $45 but for NZ Pinot Lovers maybe not so tough to justify. Sip this one on it's own...Cheers!

|Cloudy Bay's vineyards are planted in the Marlborough region at the northern end of New Zealand's South Island. The 2014 Pinot Noir is a medium-bodied, deep-red PN with ripe red Bing cherries and dark chocolate. It is floral, with fresh green herb notes on the nose -- not only violets, rose tea as well. Very special and unique with a silky, sateen finish on the palate. Lean and balanced with a zesty acidity. Drink now or cellar to 2020. - Community Wine Reviews|
