2013 John Forrest Collection Pinot Noir - Waitaki
Sam Kim | 95 Points - 5 Stars
From the Waitaki Valley, this is richly savoury and spicy on the nose showing dried cherry, smoked game, truffle, black olive and roasted nut aromas, leading to an expansive palate that is fleshy and silky. The wine offers seductive complexity and velvety mouthfeel, finishing persistent and alluring. At its best: now to 2020. $65.00. Sept 2018.

On sale now, the 2013 vintage is full-coloured, with some development showing, and a fragrant, spicy, slightly leafy bouquet. Showing good concentration, it has plummy, herbal flavours, excellent complexity, and current-drinking appeal.
