Kim Crawford Pinot Noir 2017 Review

It’s not often that a Pinot Noir opens with cracked black pepper, but that is what’s happening here. After the spicy waft comes all the earthy aromas of mushrooms, clove, black olive and some cinnamon. On the palate the stubborn pepper continues, with more classic cherry notes popping up. For the price it’s a good party wine or a crowd pleasing dinner party offering.
