Parashat Naso: Why is Samson the Prototype for a Nazir?

Why does the Tanach only mention the character of Samson, Shimson, as the prototype of a Nazir? Is a Nazir an ideal situation, removing himself from general impurity specifically defilement of the dead, drinking wine and grape related products, and not cutting his hair. Is the Nazir someone to aspire to being, or the opposite?
