Wines That Don't Suck: Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
I have yet to encounter a bottle that wasn't at least pleasant. In a taste-off of a dozen a few months ago, even the cheapest, a $6.99 2008 King Shag from Trader Joe's, was good.
The easy winner of that taste-off, and one of the best on the market right now, is the Kim Crawford 2008. This intensely aromatic and flavorful wine is simply delicious, and arguably the best white in the under-$15 price range. I've seen it recently for $14.99 at Trader Joe's (555 9th St, 401 Bay, 3 Masonic, 265 Winston), $13.99 at K&L (638 4th St), and $12.99 at Costco (450 10th St).
