In a three-pack of 2014 Pinots from Saffron Fields, this shows reserve-level density and extra complexity. Tart and juicy berry fruit gathers into a concentrated midpalate, buoyed with a refreshing, mineral-laced acidity. The raspberry and cherry fruit resonates well into a citrus-tinged finish. Tuck this away for awhile longer, and drink 2020–2028.
