Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Pinot Noir is Marlborough’s red-wine specialty, and this crowd-pleasing version comes from one of New Zealand’s most consistent producers. With pure fruit characters of brambly raspberry, black cherry and spice, it will make a fine partner for beef-and-veggie ratatouille. My note: Love this style! Juicy with black cherries and berries. Great acidity for food. Medium-bodied and lusciously supple.

Pinot Noir food pairings: beef-and-veggie ratatouille, herbed salmon steaks.

This Oyster Bay Pinot Noir 2009 was reviewed on November 13, 2010 by Natalie MacLean

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
