Red Bordeaux grape varieties, like Merlot, shine in Hawkes Bay on New Zealand's North Island. Kim Crawford's version emphasizes the easygoing and easy-drinking nature of the grape. Look for a lushly textured wine with good acidity supporting dense and plentiful fruit. Enjoy tonight with grilled lamb.
Tasting Note: A robust, smooth New Zealand red wine, with fleshy black plums and some dark spice on the finish. Kim Crawford has that rare combination of being both popular with a wide swath of wine drinkers, and respected by even the pickiest connoisseurs. Finishes with black plum and a lick of spiced oak. Wonderful! Try it with grilled lamb or pork chops. Score - 90. (Natalie MacLean, nataliemaclean.com, Oct. 15, 2014)
