Another top flight Pikes Dogwalk, offering the rich aromas and flavours of the vineyard with a bit of backbone on the palate. Good drink now for such a young wine, but will take 4-8 years cellaring without any problems at all.

A savoury, earthy Clare Valley cabernet blend, The Dogwalk is a harmonious young wine that combines blackcurrant and mulberry-like fruit with hefty notes in an easy-drinking style with medium body, good concentration and attractive softness, supported by drying tannins.

Winery Tasting Notes
Attractive aromas of ripe blackcurrant and black cherries, with a touch of "charry" french oak complimenting the concentrated fruit characters. Also some dark chocolate and violet/leafy note showing. Typical Dogwalk.
Rich flavours of ripe, dark fruits and chocolate are the features here with fine, dry tannins, subtle oak and balanced acidity adding length and structure to the finish.
