I'm currently doing:

\node [label=below:crimson]     (crimson) at (0.1,-0.9)   {}; 
\draw [fill=black] (crimson) circle (1pt);

Is there a way of doing this in one command?

Something like this:

\node [label=below:crimson,draw,fill=black,circle,inner sep=0pt,minimum size=2pt] at (0.1,-0.9) {};

AFAIK another possibility is to use plot marks like \draw plot [mark=o]. Have a look at the pgfmanual. – Martin Scharrer Apr 1 '11 at 20:57
