Lifted, perfumed and complex with flavors of plums, incense, and potpourri.
Aromas of Earl Grey tea, sage, rosemary, mint and crushed rose petals. Black cherries, pepper, mint, violets, and explosive spices on the palate. Saturated fruit on the palate with a rich, creamy finish and hints of minerality.
Hoisin-glazed spare ribs, mushroom risotto, creamy cheeses like goat brie.
Creamy and supple, with gorgeous inner perfume, the 2012 Syrah Melville is another captivating wine from SAMsARA. The flavors are deep and inky, yet the Melville has a freshness to it that is invigorating and that keeps the wine from being heavy. The generous, resonant finish, with its peppering of inky blue fruits and sweet floral notes from a bit of Malvasia Bianca that is interplanted with the Syrah is simply impossible to resist.Vinous August 2015
Brilliant ruby. Sexy red berry liqueur and floral pastille qualities on the nose, with complicating notes of Asian spices, blood orange and minerals; shows the clarity, focus and finesse of a pinot, or maybe an elegant Cote-Rotie. Sappy, finely etched raspberry and bitter cherry flavors gain breadth and weight in the glass, with smoky minerality adding lift and cut. At once precise and seamless in texture, finishing spicy, sweet and extremely long.Steven Tanzer December 2014
