Oyster Bay Marlborough 2012 Pinot Noir, $13.59-$19.99, 86 points, appeared a bright cranberry red with a broad clear rim.
Began aromatically earthy with red cherry and a hint of cinnamon.
Light-plus bodied with good acidity and mild-plus tannin carried strawberry and red cherry flavors with a hint of cola.
Finished fair on the trailing palate, a hint of pomegranate, eucalyptus, and a well integrated 13% alcohol.
Paired near perfectly with roasted turkey, gravy, butternut squash, fries, and rye toast.
