Chad Melville has minimized the role of the winemaker. It's all about growing the perfect grapes in this young AVA to make highly textured cool climate Pinots and Syrahs unlike any others in CA. Samsara is a Sanskrit word meaning "the eternal cycle of life." Husband and wife Chad and Mary Melville started Samsara in 2002 after traveling around the world. Chad farms 3/4 acre plots of personally selected rows in various Santa Rita Hills vineyards. His philosophy of clean, pristine, and healthy fruit allows for a non manipulated winemaking process. Due to the region's long, unique growing season, this enables Chad to pick ripe stems and seeds allowing whole cluster fermentation, which absorb overt fruitiness. Along with the climate and soil, these diverse, handcrafted wines are a rare combination of full ripeness, concentration, excellent structure, minerality, high acidity, and moderate alcohol levels.

TASTING NOTES: Aromas of raspberry preserve, spicecake, smoky minerals, and floral pastille. Silky, round palate, with a zesty minerality and red fruit liqueur flavors. Richness blended with focused vivacity, floral character and smooth tannins.
