Complex and powerful aromatics of olive tapenade, cracked pepper, fennel, sage, cured meat. Silky-smooth on palate, this wine has elegance and weight all at once. Complexity on all fronts with depth to match. Tasting great now and will be a total stunner in 8-10 years.
SAMsARA Wine Company was founded in 2002. The winery name is a Sanskrit word meaning “the eternal cycle of life” representing “the eternal cycle that” “every vine and wine goes through in its lifetime.” SAMsARA’s philosophy of pristine and healthy fruit allows for a non-manipulated wine-making process. SAMsARA’s fruit is grown in ¾-acre plots of personally selected rows in various Sta. Rita Hills vineyards.
An optimal growing site for Syrah and other varieties, Zotovich Vineyard is comprised of 35 acres in the northern part of the Sta. Rita Hills between Buellton and Lompoc. The vineyard is made up of mostly diatomaceous earth and sandy loam soils that create intense, mineral-driven wines.
Pairs well with beef, lamb, deer, venison, and poultry dishes.
