2008 Samsara Mellville Vineyard Pinot Noir
Subtle aromas of raspberries, wet concrete, and dried herbs lead. On the palate, it’s substantial, streamlined, and concentrated. The wine’s focused fruit resonates with varietal purity, offering flavors of blueberry tart, fresh thyme, and white pepper, balanced by dark cherry acidity and graceful tannins. It shows remarkable depth and finishes with sleek strength. Pair it with grilled quail stuffed with figs and wild mushrooms.
