SAMSARA SANTA RITA PINOT NOIR
Dark red with a bright rim. Fragrant, compelling scents of black raspberry, potpourri and Indian spices, along with a slow-building licorice component and a hint of smoky minerals. Sappy and deeply concentrated but lively as well, offering intense dark berry flavors and a pungent floral element. The floral quality builds through the long spicy finish, which shows outstanding clarity and energy and just a hint of tannins.
