2014 Pinot Noir - Lotus

95 points - The Wine Advocate - "The 2014 Pinot Noir Lotus is pale to medium ruby with an intense, powerful nose; pipe tobacco, warm blackberries, cinnamon stick and nutmeg, salami, cracked peppercorn, potpourri, dusty earth, spiced cranberry sauce, stewed rhubarb and strawberry jam - there are so many layers here, I could keep smelling and naming scents.  Medium-bodied and smooth as silk, it transforms in the mouth from saline to orange to rose to warm fruits, building in intensity, with pleasantly chewy tannins and mouthwatering freshness to counter, finishing very long, very spicy and with tons of energy. Wow!  It's drinking beautifully right now, but if you can keep your paws off, this will be stunning with a few years of bottle age" (Drink Date 2020-2030)  - Erin Brooks

93 points - The Wine Enthusiast - This reserve style of Pinot Noir from Samsara is darker, earthier and denser than the usual style, but the hallmark forest-floor aroma still reigns, along with dried red cherries. Strong cranberry, red-cherry and mulberry flavors show on the sip, but the spice rack is loaded, offering nutmeg, vanilla and star anise in recurring layers. - Matt Kettman
