Always a delight! This Kim Crawford Pinot Noir is a perfect balance between fleshy ripe plums and lively, racy acidity for dishes such as grilled pork chops. Medium-bodied, smooth and supple. Terrific value.

Pinot Noir food pairings: veal medallions, lamb in a red wine sauce, roasted pork loin, Tourtière, prime rib roasted.

Reviews and Ratings

Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautifully balanced Pinot Noir with an abundance of ripe cherry, strawberry and tomato leaf on the nose. Medium-bodied with balanced acidity and a long, cherry finish. Mouthwatering and delicious. Tasted Oct 02, 2016.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Inviting and enticing! The 2015 Kim Crawford Pinot starts out with a treasure trove of aromatics - cherry, nutmeg, dried herbs, and violets. Flavours are mouthwatering, lengthy and concentrated with highlights of tart cherry and spice. Pair with smoked ham. Tasted Oct 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Strawberry-raspberry on the nose and palate with some added cherry, herb and dark chocolate notes on the palate. Pair with pork loin or duck confit.
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Smooth and easy drinking medium bodied Pinot Noir from the South Island. Very fruity nose and palate-cranberry and cherry are prominent. Always reliable from Kim Crawford. Low tannins with nice acidity and subtle oaky notes. Pair with pesto chicken pasta. Tasted Dec 2017
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Perennially reliable pinot. Pale ruby in colour, soft and silky with zippy acidity, lots of ripe cherry-raspberry fruit and a sprinkle of spice. Keep a few on hand - this is a wine you don't have to get cerebral about - just crack it open and relax.
Carola Price rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Clear and bright cherry red. Raspberry and sour cherry, fresh fennel flower in the nose.In the mouth it is soft and very pretty. Strawberry and fresh green herbs with a light to medium finish. Easy to pair with medium bodied fish either grilled or baked and fresh pico di gallo. Think Baja fish tacos. Or just cosy up to some Boursin and Emmenthal with herbed foccacia.

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale ruby with aromas of herby cherry and strawberry. Medium acidity and no tannins to speak of. The taste is silky cherry, leaning a little towards the tart side. Pair with soft cheeses.
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

An easy-to-drink Pinot Noir that shows off some nice fruity notes…
Presentation: Distinctive, classy label
Appearance: Clear, pale, ruby
Nose: Clean, light nose with notes of red berries (cherries, raspberries, strawberries), rhubarb, blueberries, violets
Taste: Dry, light body, light acidity, medium/round tannins, sour cherries, leather, some earth notes
Finish: Medium, with enduring earth/dirt and sour fruit notes
Overall impression: A good to very good Pinot Noir, easy to drink, but it will require more delicate foods (not too acidic or sweet).
Value: 3.5/5
Emmanuel Belanger rated this wine as 85/100
Sylvain Segard reviewed this wine as follows:

Bright pale ruby with a clear rim. Moderate intensity aromas of red cherries and spicy raspberries with herbal character and a feint hint of smoked meat. Light bodied, soft tannins, and balanced juicy acidity. The palate has the characteristic red fruits, including strawberries. This is an easy drinking wine for all occasions. Pairs with soft cheeses, charcuterie, and ham. Score 88. (S.Segard reviewed Mar. 03, 2017)
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted Jan. 31, 2018 in Aruba. Colour medium ruby red. Legs medium. Aromas and flavours of cherry, strawberry, red plum. Taste dry, red fruit, mouthwatering, medium mouthfeel, soft tannin. Finish red fruit, mouthwatering. Easy to drink. Well marketed wine of good quality and value. You can not go wrong trying this wine. We just drank it with some appetizers but mostly on its own. Good safe choice to have with friends. Very recognizable.
