SAMSARA 2013 PINOT NOIR SANTA RITA HILLS 750mL

ANTONIO GALLONI'S VINOUS MEDIA 91 POINTS - "Chad Melville seems to be outgrowing his tiny facility in Lompoc's wine ghetto but he insisted to me that "it still works just fine" and that he wants to keep things "tight and manageable" given his added responsibilities with the family winery. He told me that his current obsession is "not letting fermentation temperatures go too high," thereby extending the process and building complexity into the wines as well as maintaining freshness. Melville explained: "Complexity is the ultimate goal because anybody in California can do fruit--the job is to move past that.""

"Brilliant red. Smoky raspberry and redcurrant aromas are accented by allspice, anise and mocha. Supple, sharply defined red fruit flavors give way with aeration to deeper dark berries and cherry, picking up a touch of candied rose. Dusty tannins come on late, adding shape to the long spice- and mineral-tinged finish."
