Sipworthy Scores: Saffron Fields Vineyard 2010 Pinot Noir
Thursday, April 11th 2013 by NW Wine Correspondent - Allie Merrick
We'd like to raise our glasses to Saffron Fields Vineyards and their 2010 Pinot Noir from the Yamhill-Carlton District. This wine received 90 points and was recently described in the Wine Spectator as follows:
"Light and refreshing, offering pretty plum and spice flavors set on an airy texture. Comes together on the finish, with a brush of tannins. Drink now through 2017." -H.S.

My Wine Words: CAW 2008 Pinot Noir

Ever smelled a cranberry carnation?!
No, I hasn't either. However, if such a hybrid of a flower existed, I imagine it would have a scent that would taste like this. While Peter has a different description for this bottle of 2008 Pinot Noir from CAW, we both agree that it's lovely with beautiful cranberry & pomegranate notes.
