The stunningly beautiful Saffron Fields lies on the Eastern edge of Yamhill Carlton, nestled above Shea Vineyard to the south. The vineyard was planted in 2007 with high density Pinot Noir vines on a promontory 400 feet above sea level. These vines, planted  by Dr. Angela Summers and Sanjeev Lahoti are sustainably farmed. Our blocks at Saffron utilize Pommard, a sought-after and early-ripening clone known for its intense inky spice and meaty character. The combination of lower elevation and an orientation that maximizes mid-day sun makes Saffron Fields our warmest and earliest-ripening site. Pairing the early-blooming and powerful Pommard with Saffron’s substantial heat makes for wine with blockbuster potential.

94 Pts. "Smoky mulberries and darker cherry fruits as well as earthy spice, toast, and violet notes emerge from the 2018 Pinot Noir Saffron Fields Vineyard. It's one of the bigger wines in the lineup, offering medium to full body, a layered, seamless texture, and ripe, impressive tannins. Easily my favorite in the lineup, this gorgeous Pinot Noir stays classically styled and elegant while still having fruit, texture, and length."
