Too light and tired for my liking, but still very Pinot - if new world. Mostly strawberry and red fruit confit upon entry with a certain old quality that was not entirely welcome. Try a more recent vintage.

85 points. This wine had a light strawberry red color and a delicate viscosity. There was a lot going on on the nose, with a core of sweet, red fruit and multiple layers of just ripe strawberry, a faint rosemary character, a bit of paprika, and a curious shisha (the sweet, syrupy tobacco smoked in Hooka pipes) component. The taste is bright and fresh with cherry candy, then some soft woodsy, mossy tones, and a delicate herbal finish. This is a fairly straightforward pinot with pleasant brightness and a nice light to medium body, nothing spectacular but a well made, easy drinking and friendly wine. Pairing: This would go great with anything from pork tenderloin to salmon (one of my personal favorite dishes with light pinots like this.)

Pinot Noir is weird! This tastes clean, fresh, fruity and is softly acidic, a light wine that refreshes pork chops. But, with pot roast, it stands up and cuts through with subtle nose and flavors that only show up with this rich food.

Very fruity and interesting, with scents of cherry, leather and wood. Elegant and not exagerrate, to match with elaborate chicken or pork dishes, but not with red meats which would kill the flavour.

This wine was the winner on a wine tasting night on my birthday. It's fairly light for a pinot noir.

A MORRELL DISCOVERY! Fragrant, soft and flavorful with aromas of ripe cherries, plums and gentle tannins to provide structure and length. A great value.

Oyster Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir is elegant cool climate pinot noir at its best. Fragrant, soft and flavourful with aromas of ripe cherries, plums and gentle sweet fruit tannins to provide serious structure and length.
