Oyster Bay Pinot Noir 2014
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
This is a prime example of what big-production Marlborough Pinot Noir can do well. The aromas are clean, redolent of fresh black cherries and blossoms. The feel on the palate is ample, even lush, but not heavy. Cola and spice elements emerge on the long, silky finish. What's not to like?
Plum and cherry flavors and notes of black pepper, spice and cola are broad and appealing, with firm tannins on the finish and plenty of fresh earth details. Drink now through 2030. 65,000 cases imported.
