Samsara 2012 Syrah
Melville Vineyard Santa Barbara County
Wine Advocate 95 Rating
Another sensational Syrah from Chad, the 2012 Syrah Melville Vineyard got a big “Wow” in the notes. Loaded with notions of black raspberries, cassis, crushed violets, rose petal and smoked game, it has terrific concentration, a voluptuous, sexy texture and a great finish. Delivering both complexity and decadence, I'm a huge fan and would drink bottles over the coming 5-7 years, although I wouldn't be surprised to see it hold for longer either. It saw 33% stems during fermentation and two years all in neutral oak. At this level of quality, it's a killer value.
