Some love from Rusty Gaffney for the 2010 Saffron Fields Vineyard.
2010 Saffron Fields Vineyard Yamhill-Carlton District Oregon Pinot Noir
“13.5% alc., $48. Vinified by Rynders. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Very fragrant reminiscent of fresh blackberry jam. Juicy and easy to drink, with a tasteful array of berry flavors backed by a complimentary barrel presence. Broad in the mouth with good ripeness, supple tannins. a very soft and velvety mouth feel, and a generous, fruit-driven finish. This vineyard is very impressive in 2010 (see also 2010 Roots Saffron Fields Pinot Noir). Very good.”
