    Ata Rangi has gained worldwide recognition for their highly complex, unmatched Pinot Noir and their "Crimson" offering certainly has a lot to offer at a fraction of the price as their flagship. The structure and acidity in this wine hit you right away and let you know this wine can definitely be cellared for a decade. That's how much power it has. Soft, juicy red fruits roll past the initial tannin and create a silky, enveloping mouthfeel. Dark berries intermingle with spice and herbs to create a wine that is uniquely Martinborough. It's nearly impossible to find a wine of this caliber in California or Burgundy for this price point.
    Top Value!

    This is utterly delicious, easy to drink and has more character than some Pinots costing twice as much. The body is deep and rich with lots of sweet fruit and a forward and flattering personality. This is a bargain for the quality.

    The 2016 "Crimson" marks the first time we've carried the Ata Rangi mark here at K&L and I couldn't be more impressed with it as a side companion to the grand cuvee. In no way is this wine superfluous or simply a lesser version of its legendary mainstay. The Crimson is a darker, fleshier, and more supple Pinot Noir on every level, more like a Pommard or Volnay to the classic Ata Rangi's Richebourg. It's a juicy Pinot Noir that's almost daring you to put lay it down in your cellar, as if to say: "You really think you can resist?" It's that good already!
