Kim Crawford 2006 Pino Noir
Kim is from Marlborough, New Zealand, and her Sauvignon Blanc popularity certainly overshadows her reds. In fact, I wasn't even aware she produced a Pinot Noir. Floral and grapefruit on the nose followed by a very smooth sip of a light wine. Flavors of subtle grapefruit with strawberries and cherry - Good finish. Went well with my Firecracker Salmon and edamame...but the cherry became a bit much with the second glass.
$12.50 at Costco. 6/10 rating, happy with this selection but not thrilled. And disregard my reflection in the bottle pic. ;)
