More information on wine critics and ratings
On release the wine is a bright ruby colour. Its generous aromas and flavours dark cherries, blackberries, raspberries and mulberries, suffused with chocolate mocha and spice. There is an underlying savoury character, suggesting grilled meats and mushrooms with a hint of black olive tapenade. It is seductively light on entry but rapidly expands on the palate to become rich and mouth filling, while retaining elegance and poise. Silky tannins help draw out its lingering aftertaste.

James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2016)
Wild herbs and bracken with red fruit and darker, more earthy notes. Rose hips, black tea and plums. The palate has a dense, succulent and seamlessly polished, tightly wrapped feel. Long and taut. Needs time. Drink in 2022. Screw cap.

Decanter (DCT) : 93 Points (2016)
Vibrant and youthful, with dark cherry, violets and a hint of smoke. Concentrated and intense on the palate, with a lingering finish. Classy.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2016)
Made with 40% whole clusters, the 2016 Pinot Noir looks to be the finest regular Peg Bay Pinot in some time. Its spicy, stemmy, sappy notes are balanced by bright, fresh black cherry fruit. It's medium-bodied, with a silky feel and a lingering finish that echoes with attractive tea-like nuances.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2014)
Muscular and savory, with forest floor and dried mushroom notes to the juicy black cherry and plum core. Complex, spicy and earthy on the robust finish. Drink now through 2027. (MW) (8/2017)

Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 96 Points (2013)
Appealing, ripe and quite concentrated pinot noir with a complex mix of plum, dark cherry, violet, savoury, forest floor characters. Silken-textured wine with an extraordinary lingering finish demonstrating real power. A supremely elegant wine with an intriguing rustic edge.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2013)
Bright, dark red. Perfumed aromas of raspberry, gingerbread and mocha convey partial whole-cluster fermentation. Juicy and savory, displaying a lovely light touch to its musky red berry and spice flavors. Very firmly structured yet pliant Pinot Noir with excellent intensity and inner-mouth lift. Finishes brisk and persistent. (ST) (5/2016)

Burghound (BH) : 90 Points (2013)
A trace of herbal tea can be discerned on the fresh, cool and bright nose that combines notes of cranberry, cherry and plum with those of spice and soft floral nuances. There is good verve and detail to the delicious and attractively textured medium weight flavors that deliver solid depth and length on the ever-so-slightly tangy finale.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 17.5 Points (2010)
Tasted Nov 2012 - Again, darker and spicier and less openly aromatic than the straight Pinot, especially now in youth. Has red fruit on the mid palate. Savoury oak spice. Dense but very fine tannins. Lots of spice. Tight and mineral on the finish. Very firm. (JH)

Catena Zapata Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Lush blackcurrant, mint and chocolate notes with chewy ripe tannins and a racy, fresh feel. A balance between the restraint of Bordeaux and the Uber-Cabs of California.

El Enemigo Malbec 2019
On the nose the Malbec has floral scents of violets and lavender, along with the freshness of its natural acidity. The Petit Verdot lends the aromas of the ripe black berry fruits. The palate offers vanilla and toasted flavours; in the mouth it is sweet, silky and big. It is a wine of a good balance and strong tannins.
