2006 Kim Crawford Marlborough Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $16. Aged in barrel and tank for 5+ months. Imported by Vincor USA, Esparto, CA. Winemaker Kim Crawford has left her eponymous winery, which was acquired by Constellation Brands in 2006 through the company’s purchase of Vincor. Winemakers Matt Large and Jules Taylor will take over. · Delicate red fruits, dried herbs and a little grassiness on the nose. Tasty red fruits which are a little leafy with some oak running through. Very light and elegant with a slightly dry and tart finish. A good daily drinker. Reviewed October 13, 2008
