Jon Steeves rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Pinot is a crowd pleaser and value priced. Offering tart dark cherry, minerality, a hint of spice with exceptional mouth watering acidity. A perfect companion for the sous vide chicken I enjoyed it with. This wine is versatile and offers itself up to pairing with lamb, braised meats, roast turkey or on its own. @jonsteeves rated 90/100 - tasted Sept 2016
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is one of my go-to pinots. It is medium-bodied and elegant, with tart cherry, raspberry and earthy notes. Someone once told me that pinot is to wine what black jeans are to fashio - they just go with everything. The wine's mouth-tingling acidity keeps you salivating for more and pairs perfectly with a large variety of foods from across the globe. Buy a couple of bottles before the sale ends in October!

Kim Crawford Pinot Noir is a crowd pleaser every time and at a promo price of $18 it's a real price performer. Sour cherry, violets, earthiness and stony minerality with the perfect amount of mouth-watering acidity make this light-bodied red so approachable. The palate is treated to a smooth lingering chocolate cherry finish. Enjoyed this with roasted chicken in a tomato-butter sauce.

Jane Staples rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

One of my all-time favourite Pinot Noirs, with just the right mouth-watering balance of tart cherry, earth, milk chocolate, mocha and slight spices. Silky texture, food-friendly acidity and lingering mocha finish make this my go-to Pinot Noir. It was delicious with savoury appetizers, chicken in spicy sauce and rich chocolate cake.
Currently on sale at LCBO, so pick up more than one. I did!
