Today we’re talking WINE! I don’t drink a ton of red wine but I enjoy it more in the Winter and I recently bought a delicious red wine from Costco that I want to review!


The Kim Crawford 2018 New Zealand Pinot Noir is a tantalizing lighter red wine. It’s not thick and heavy but quite smooth and light and very easy to drink. The Pinot Noir has notes of strawberry, plum, black cherry and spice. I didn’t taste much spice but I definitely did pick up on lots of fruity notes! Definitely more of a fruity red wine. Also not too acidic. This wine would be perfect for a holiday dinner.


I purchased the Kim Crawford 2018 New Zealand Pinot Noir from Costco Liquor for $13.99 Canadian. Which isn’t bad! I believe it’s cheaper at Costco than other liquor stores and If you were to buy this bottle at a restaurant here I bet you’d be looking at over $40.

This would be perfect with lamb or steak also I would definitely recommend serving this at a party or holiday dinner. It’s a wine that I feel would be enjoyed by a lot of people who like red wine.


Okay, so the opinions on whether wine is healthy or not can be polarizing. I will just let you know that the Kim Crawford 2018 New Zealand Pinot Noir has 13% alcohol.

I would definitely repurchase this wine and will probably pick up a bottle next time I’m at Costco!
