Kim Crawford Pinot Noir Marlborough 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Distinctively Pinot Noir with berry fruits especially raspberry wild strawberry and cherry and hints of rhubarb. A subtle dusty herb complexity is beginning to occur. A savoury Pinot Noir with elegant ripe fruit coupled with soft tannins and a touch of oak.

Kim Crawford Wines:
One of the reasons why New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs have taken the world by storm. Delightful to the point of exuberance, this is a great wine for drinking alone of with lighter fare.

what is there to say about this mass-produced gem. Not as fruit juicy as I expected. Vegetal almost chinon approach. Some faint strawberry. Very smooth.

Light in color, but much heavier in taste than earlier Pinot Noirs. Tanniny/sour/bitter at the end. Smokey smell.

Why do I feel like this is a guilty pleasure wine? It's cheap. It's everywhere. More importantly, it's smooth and good. For some reason, I'd like to not like it, but I do for some reason. what?

Nice light fruit notes. Great wine on it's own. Does not pair well with scallops.

A slightly chunky Pinot Noir, with sturdy black cherry fruit, mushroomy overtones and a cedary touch. It's full-bodied and mouthfilling, just lacks an extra measure of elegance, showing off some rough edges on the finish.

Focused, with very good depth to black cherry, tangy wild berry and gravel flavors. Cedary oak and a hint of fresh herbs linger on the finish. Drink now through 2010.

The 2006 Marlborough Pinot Noir has an attractive nose of dark cherry and comes across more Central Otago than Marlborough with good definition and crispness. The palate is medium-bodied, a little dry and linear with black cherry and a touch of pepper on the rather austere finish - a Pinot that really needs cuisine to shine.

Palish red. Sweet red berries and spices on the nose. Ripe, high-toned and easygoing, with a creamy sweetness to the flavors of cherry and orange peel. I enjoyed this wine's seamless mid-palate texture but marked it down a bit fro slightly dry tannins.

Light and refined, with earthy, peppery cherry flavors that echo on the fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2004.

It's a simple, fruit-driven Pinot, but it's well done in its idiom, with black cherry fruit carried by a plump mouthfeel and supple tannins. Finishes crisp, making it versatile at the table and worth trying with salmon or tuna. Drink now.

This Pinot Noir is an aromatic wine with black cherries and red currants on the nose, complex with integrated oak and a smoky bacon character.
