Samsara Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills Melville Vineyard 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Josh Raynolds (IWC): (50% whole cluster-fermented): Deep, bright red. Seductively perfumed aromas of candied red fruit and licorice, with strong violet and allspice qualities gaining strength with air. Juicy, palate-staining black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are extremely youthful, offering an impressive blend of depth and energy and nicely lifted by tangy acidity. The floral quality dominates the long, sappy, impressively pure finish. This should be a real knockout in a couple years. (Oct/Nov 2011)
