The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctively regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavors. Oyster Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir is elegant, cool climate Pinot Noir at its best-sublime, stylish, and silky-smooth. Aromatic cherry, bright red berry, and juicy black plum, with a lingering, smooth, and seductive texture. Oyster Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir is ideal as an aperitif or perfectly matched with red meats, ribs and game, grilled salmon, tuna and game fish, Asian flavors, smoky flavors such as bacon, fruit sauces and rich jus, and soft and hard cheeses.

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.
