    November 12, 2018 - A nice pinot with concentrated fruit, raspberry and dark cherry with hints of spice and mocha. Paired very nicely with cedar plank grilled salmon with Asian glaze.

    December 22, 2015 - A gorgeous wine from a tricky vintage, this may be one of the most balanced and enjoyable wines from this producer ever, in my humble opinion. Shows a glorious rich ripe red cherry and almost cranberry acidic crispness that balances a firm tannic backbone with a surprisingly lush full body; that's what makes these wines so special. How do they do that? A tour de force in a very tricky year - KUDOS!

    July 3, 2015 - Decanted through a vinturi and let sit for almost two hours while we drank the Samsara Pinot Noir. This wine is brilliant, lots of fruit on the nose, the palate is red berries, cherry, rose petals, and spices. A very long smooth finish.

    February 13, 2015 - Darker red than BTF consumed on same day. Sweet cherry, strawberry and plum. Really savory pinot and will probably get better with time.

    December 19, 2014 - Decanted 2 hours. Chanukah dinner with roast chicken and potato latkes. Beyond amazing! Not overpowering but powerful in its own way.
