    (2009 Oyster Bay Pinot Noir; New Zealand, Marlborough region (best are usually from Central Otago, but Marlborough is pretty good too); Color: Nice medium purple with almost a tannic/tea like structure. Nose: Sensational...Nice mix of strawberry, a little cranberry, and a hint of earthiness. Taste: Overall, a solid very good. Initially is a bit coarse, not overly refined. Flavors are intiially candied cherry with some strawberry as well. Midpalate becomes primarily candied, with a continuation of red fruit and a little earthiness. Finishes with a vegetal note, which would works well with food. On its own, I don't love the finish. Also shows a bit more alcohol on the finish than I would like. I can recommend this wine quite a bit, although it may not be for everyone. Also quite good with food. QPR: For Pinot, excellent. Overall, solid but not great QPR. Currently if looking for a Pinot noir, would choose La Crema over this one.

    Smooth and light. Slight sweetness, effervescent on the tounge.
