2015 Saffron Fields Vineyard Spectrum Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., pH 3.68, 500 cases, $40. Multiple clones from multiple Willamette Valley AVAs and including some estate fruit. Meant to showcase the entire Willamette Valley. Aged 17 months in French oak barrels, 50% new. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Leading off are aromas of the blackest cherry, cola, underbrush and vanilla. A hearty and full-bodied wine offering waves of sweet black raspberry and blackberry fruit flavors along with a note of cola and oakdriven tastes of dark chocolate and toast. The bold and ripe fruit generously engages the palate and finish, yet the wine is nimble. The suede tannins are hardly perceptible. A satisfying wine that reflects the warm vintage in the Willamette Valley. Score: 90. Reviewed February 21, 2018
