Oyster Bay Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
An easy, light-bodied Pinot that combines ripe red berry and mushroom notes with savory spices. Acidity on the palate is bright and fresh, balancing ripe, plush berries. Tannins are virtually nonexistent.
Tangy raspberry, blood orange, spice and toasted herb notes are balanced and show a firm accent of strong black tea in the background. Drink now. 10,000 cases made, 8,100 cases imported.
The 2018 Pinot Noir features decent red-fruited notes of raspberries and cherries, but it lacks intensity and texture. It's light to medium-bodied, with an abbreviated finish.
