2012 Roots Saffron Fields Vineyard Yamhill-Carlton Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., $40. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. A raft of blackberry, black raspberry and black cherry fruit fuels a very pleasurable nose and palate. Mid to full-bodied, with an attention-getting grainy mouth feel, and plenty of finishing goodness. Plenty of harmony and pleasure at work here. Score: 92. Reviewed July 6, 2014
