Oyster Bay's Pinot Noir 2017 is a supple, smooth, medium-bodied red wine. Featuring aromas of black cherries, plum, dried herbs and dark spice. Racy acidity makes this wine mouth-watering and zesty. A lovely, long finish. Pair with roast chicken or turkey.

|Samer Forzley rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Expressive wine and earthy wine. Raspberry and strawberry, forest, cedar, cigar box, and pencil shavings.
On the pallet: Fruit forward, with raspberry, cherry, vanilla, and spice.
Well rounded, with a medium finish, and easy to drink. Works well with turkey dinner if you are celebrating Thanksgiving.

Excellent value Pinot Noir from New Zealand with raspberry and cherry notes with a touch of spice on the palate. Has a nice fruit forward finish. Pair with pork tenderloin. Tasted November 2018.
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Love this pinot, sitting nicely between old and new world styles. A touch of toastiness and dried cranberry aromas on the nose. Nice fresh red fruits, soft acid, and harmony structure. Very good for the price and good to drink it alone in front of the fireplace.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Sour cherry, cranberry, moss, green peppercorn aroma; peppery, cherry, cocoa on the sip. Pair with roast duck, turkey, pork.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Consistently good year after year. Aromas of tart cherry, strawberry, and pencil shavings. Smooth on the palate with some medium+ acidity. Quite fruit forward on the palate with a slightly spicy finish. Enjoy with salmon, turkey or duck.

This tasty, smooth red is from New Zealand's renowned Marlborough region. It has notes of dark cherry, red berries and juicy plums. It has a long smooth finish.
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Always a great Pinot and a great source of value year-in year-out. The 2017 is gorgeous with plenty of fresh and candied cherry, stewy strawberry, fresh herbs and beet juice. Pair with seared duck breast. 90 Points.
|Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A perfectly crafted, reasonably priced new world PN. Correct colours lure you in to experience a beautiful bouquet of cherry with fresh and dried characteristics. A good dollop of animal/leather notes on the palate with a nice lifted floral note that is only apparent when tasted not nosed (if you can believe that). Good length.
|Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
A good value Pinot Noir from New Zealand with aromas of cherry and raspberry, herbs and allspice. Light to medium bodied, the acidity is high so pair with red and white meats with sauces.
|A perennial favourite, Oyster Bay's Pinot Noir from the Marlborough, is not only known for its great value but also for its smooth, supple red cherry, raspberry, strawberry, dried herbs, cedar spice and vanilla flavours on the palate. Well rounded with supple tannins and zesty acidity to pair with roast chicken, turkey, or easy-drinking enough to have on its own. - Community Wine Reviews|
