2015 Saffron Fields Vineyard Dijon Clones Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., pH 3.62, 450 cases, $50. Clones 115 and 777. 100% Estate. Aged 18 months in French oak barrels, 38% new. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. The nose is reserved but gracious, offering aromas of dark cherry coulis, spice and warm bread. Mid weight in style, with a core of dark red fruits framed by nutty oak. The tannins are quite agreeable making for easy approachability. The finish is friendly but a bit shallow compared to the entire estate bottling. Score: 91. Reviewed February 21, 2018
