SAMsARA Wine Company, 2014 SAMsARA Pinot Noir Cargasacchi Vineyard

"Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Cargasacchi Vineyard offers up fragrant lavender, Provence herbs and damp earth scents over a core of Bing cherries and wild strawberries with hints of tree sap and cinnamon stick. The medium-bodied palate gives a solid frame of grainy/chewy tannins and lively acid, backing up the intense red berry and earthy layers nicely, finishing with great persistence. Give it another year for the apparent stem inclusion to marry-in and drink it over the next ten years+."

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Cargasacchi Vineyard is powerful and intense, but also hearty and rough around the edges, especially in its tannic profile. There is good depth, but not as much finesse as is found in the other wines in this range."
