2015 Saffron Fields Vineyard Heritage Clones Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., pH 3.65, 550 cases, $50. Pommard and W├Ądenswil clones. 100% Estate. Aged 18 months in French oak barrels, 64% new. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Likable aromas of Bing cherry, warm spices, vanilla and pencil lead. Luscious in the mouth in a middleweight style, with a well-spiced cherry charge that shows intent on the attack and mid palate, finishing with modesty. The tannins are quite gentle and the oak treatment is only mildly noticeable in the background. Pommard seems to thrive at this site. Score: 92. Reviewed February 21, 2018
