Member Review by pmurz:

Too young right now. Overwhelming acidity makes it seem carbonated.

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.

I have to agree with pmurz, it did seem to be carbonated.

1) Smoky, pepery cinnamon and plums on the nose 2) Cherry, Raspberry and stewed plums on the palate with slight hints of strawberry and truffle. Oaky. 3) Well balanced. 4) Nice smooth finish accompanied with excellent length. D 5) Tannins powerful but decent due to youth of wine.

I agree with most of the reviews written -- including the fruit notes. I really liked the smoky overtone that dressed this wine up.

Very smooth. Not as interesting as some other Pinots. Not the best value.

2006 13.5% ABV Pinot Noir 750mL $16.99 Nose reminds me of burning oak in a musty basement; very earthy, damp and smoky with some stone fruit added in. Brownish amber in color. Oak, cherries and a bit earthy. Not overly tannic. Nice staying power. Not as complex as many other Pinots.

Bright red with purple and crimson notes. An enticingly aromatic wine showing notes of dark cherries and strawberries with the alluring complexity of well integrated oak. Vibrant, fresh fruit flavors underpinned by nuances of sweet, smoky oak. Good firm t

As a nation of islands, our glorious country benefits from the temperature modulating effect of the sea. We enjoy long, dry autumns, which allow slow ripening our grapes develop intensity as well as good acid structure.

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.

For the price, this is a good introduction to NZ Pinot Noir, showing a smooth mouthfeel and smoky. briary complexities layered over tangy beet and cherry fruit.

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

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