2013 SAFFRON FIELDS PINOT NOIR
Saffron Fields Vineyard, located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, sits atop renowned Willakenzie soils. The site's microclimate is consistently very warm, which tends to produce exceptionally ripe fruit. Wines originating from this vineyard are renown for their dark red fruit notes and massive presence.
On the nose, our Saffron Fields Vineyard Pinot Noir displays dark notes of ripe cherries, cooked plum, blueberries and fresh strawberries. Primal, fruity aromas are laced with hints of licorice spice, while scents of rose petals intermingle with the fragrance of vanilla.Bright and creamy, the juicy attack moves into a broad and generous mid-palate with silky tannins wrapped around the flavor of dark cherries. The wine finishes with cola, licorice, wood and Graham cracker notes, with a subtle hint of black tea.
