Expressive nose of red sour cherries, candy, yeast, clean, maybe lacking a bit of complexity for the price. Guess I should have waited longer for this 2017 drunk in 2021 — 3 days ago

Dark crimson in colour. Red florals with earthy beetroot notes on a medium bodied palate with medium plus intensity. Still quite stern tannins but overall starting to break the confines of over extraction finally at 12 years of age. This is my last bottle and the best of 6 originally bought. Previous notes have said that this is a Shiraz drinkers Pinot and I still stick with that assessment. I believe Dry River are now making their Pinots less extracted and more approachable at a younger age. In summary this is excellent, it just needed time. — 2 months ago
Craggy Range is a family owned winery established in 1997. Pale straw with stone and citrus fruit aromas with hints of honey sweetness. On the palate dry, with lively fruit, gooseberry, lime, melon and pronounced grapefruit flavors with subtle herb tones, vivid acidity, crisp and refreshing. Long smooth finish ending with a mineral tones. Nice value! Ready to drink now! Love the ‘19, tried twice. — a month ago

I had this 2015 and I could sense it was already starting to show negative signs of age. Starting to show tertiaries and tiredness. It’s a lovely wine and I would rate it higher, but if you have 2015s or older vintages you should drink them now or RIP. That’s my feeling. #pinotnoir #martinborough #newzealand — 2 months ago
