SAM KIM - (Wine Orbit): French Peak Reserve Pinot Noir 2014 93/5*****
Richly fruited and beautifully fragrant, the bouquet shows dark cherry, blueberry, mixed spice and cedar characters with a touch of dried herb complexity. The palate is concentrated and weighty, and displays excellent fruit power together with velvety texture and fine, drying tannins. This is sturdy and bold, backed by impressive fruit richness.
