Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"The 2014 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills) is a superb appellation-level wine. Dark cherry, plum, dark spice, menthol and leather are fused together in a deep, intense Pinot endowed with real character and personality. The vineyard sites are Las Hermanas, Lafond and Rancho La Viña."

Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The peppery, herbal, black cherry and smoked earth-scented 2014 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is rich, textured and balanced on the palate, with bright acidity and a clean, gulpable style that keeps you coming back to the glass. It has excellent complexity, plenty of fruit and will drink nicely for 4-5 years."

Product Description:

"Samsara is a Sanskrit word meaning “the eternal cycle of life.” Husband and wife Chad and Mary Melville started Samsara in 2002 after traveling around the world. Chad farms 3/4 acre plots of personally-selected rows in various Santa Rita Hills vineyards. His philosophy of clean, pristine, and healthy fruit allows for a non-manipulated winemaking process. Due to the region’s long, unique growing season, this enables Chad to pick ripe stems and seeds allowing whole cluster fermentation, which absorb overt fruitiness. Along with the climate and soil, these diverse, handcrafted wines are a rare combination of full ripeness, concentration, excellent structure, minerality, high acidity, and moderate alcohol levels." - Winery
