Cloudy Bay 2009 Pinot Noir (Marlborough)

  1. $35
Although CB made its reputation on Sauvignon Blanc, the Pinot Noir is finally achieving a similar level of quality. Dark cherry fruit is couched in notes of sandalwood, cinnamon and clove, framed by tannins that are silky without being excessively soft. Drink now–2016.  — J.C.  (4/1/2012)

The Bay is back! This bold, fruit-driven offering is the best Cloudy Bay Savvy in at least a few vintages, with subtle leafy shadings layered over tropical fruit and adding complexity to the long, fresh finish. Drink now  — J.C.  (9/1/2011)

Cloudy Bay 2005 Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

  1. $25
This is the highest this benchmark wine has ever scored with our tasters, from what is beginning to look like an excellent year for Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It’s still in an early estery phase right now, marked by honeyed tropical fruits, nectarines and grapefruit, but you can sense the herbal-jalapeño flavors lurking in the background. Rich and powerful on the…  — W.E.  (12/15/2005)

Cloudy Bay 2011 Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

  1. $25
This Marlborough classic remains on form, artfully blending pineapple and crushed tomato leaf notes. If it’s a bit leaner than some examples from the region, it’s also more elegant and refined; less explosive and flamboyant, but tighter and more focused.  — J.C.  (8/1/2012)

Cloudy Bay 2006 Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

  1. $27
Marlborough’s standard-bearer continues to turn out vintage after vintage of worthy wines. CB’s 2006 Sauvignon is marginally less rich than the 2005, but still offers plenty of crisp, tangy tropical flavors. Pineapple and grapefruit notes finish with a grassy edge.  — J.C.  (3/1/2007)

Cloudy Bay 2007 Chardonnay (Marlborough)

  1. $29
Full-bodied, rich and custardy, with ripe melon and pineapple fruit framed by toasted grain. This is a big, powerful, opulent Chardonnay, yet it also shows the finesse expected from Cloudy Bay. Drink it over the next year or two.  — J.C.  (9/1/2009)

Cloudy Bay 2007 Pinot Noir (Marlborough)

  1. $35
CB is getting it right these days, almost regardless of variety. This Pinot Noir features pretty cherry and vanilla shadings and a hint of briary complexity. It’s round and plump on the palate, marked by crisp acids and silky tannins on the finish. Drink now–2012.  — J.C.  (9/1/2009)
