WinebloggingWednesday #17, Red Kiwis, is hosted by the Cork Dork. This morning I read Maggie's post, "Wne as Women," and was inspired to junk the initial tasting note, and go for something a bit more anthropomorphic. Introducing....Kim (Kim Crawford Marlborough Pinot Noir 2003 [$16]):
Kim is an up and coming tap dancer. She's new to it all, but many say she shows talent. Some insist her style hearkens back to the classic fusion of African shuffle and English step dances. Others, after seeing her perform, feel she has potential - yet believe a few more years of honing her craft may yield a masterpiece. I saw Kim dance tonight. Her style is compelling and immediately likable. However, during her performance, I found my mind wandering, and longed for more complexity and variation in her dance. I can't say that I wasn't at least partially engrossed by her performance. In fact, the dance was over before I knew it. Perhaps her style is best suited for a Wednesday evening? For now, I'll hold on to my weekend reservation with the masters.
