2014 Delfina's Vineyard Pinot Noir "The Reserve"

Friends,

“Reserve” is a title that is thrown around pretty liberally in the wine industry, often without a whole lot of meaning. Most terms on a wine label have solid statistics or legal requirements behind them. For the wine to be called Pinot Noir, it needs to be at least 75% of that varietal. To list an official AVA like Arroyo Seco, at least 85% of the grapes have to come from within that appellation’s boundaries. But “Reserve” in the U.S. has no such definition, no required components. For the most part, it is simply a marketing moniker.

Until now. “The Reserve” is Blair Estate’s ultimate Pinot Noir. Everything about this wine is exceptional. “The Reserve” designation here has real meaning. Simply put, it is hand selected from the very best vines each vintage – held in “reserve” for special treatment and special occasions.

Here’s an excerpt from my vineyard log book from the 2014 vintage: “October 10. Walking Delfina’s, I left the refractometer behind and hand sampled for the very best grapes. Trusting my palate, I selected just enough fruit for five barrels worth of truly exceptional Pinot Noir. Clone 115 came from rows 15 thru 18. Rows 54 thru 57 gave us Clone 777. In 2014 we added Clone 667 from rows 44 & 45. And Pommard 4 came off the north blocks rows 31 & 32 and the south block’s rows 71 through 74.” These were the grapes destined for this second ever “The Reserve” release.

Only 125 cases were produced of Blair Estate 2014 “The Reserve.” The 2014 "The Reserve has recieved 92 Points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine and a Double Gold from the 2018 New Orleans Interanational Wine Competition. This is the Blair family’s ultimate statement in Pinot Noir from the Arroyo Seco – clearly putting the vineyard and the appellation on the map with California’s very best PN locales.

Respectfully, Jeffrey Blair

Blair Estate 2015 Delfina's Pinot Noir

In the glass, our signature "Delfina's" Pinot Noir displays a nose of cherry vanilla, nutmeg and cream.  The palate is rich and ripe showing bright sweet raspberry, cherry, dark plum and finishes with spiced flowers and beautifully balanced acidity. An incredibly food-versatile Pinot: try it with roast salmon, duck, lamb, mushroom dishes or just about anything of the grill.

Blair Estate 2016 Chardonnay "The Matriarch"

The Matriarch is an unapologetcally "big" wine. By using a mixture of standard size French oak barrels (60 gallons) and French oak Puncheons (132 gallons) we are able tokeep our trademark cool climate acidity and fruit characters alive which keeps the wine in balance and allows it to display a streak of minerality.  Aromas of hazelnut, carmel, citrus oil and brioche.  On the palate a display of buttery flavors of pineapple and toasted peach, apple, nectarine and guava.  Ripe and round with just the right amount of acidity on the finish to keep this massive Chardonnay in balance. A perfect match for cream-sauced pastas, roast turkey, Cioppino or fresh shell fish.

Blair Estate 2015 Morgantini Pinot Noir

Morgantini is a well-regarded estate that has its own unique micro-climate. Only a mile seperates our vineyards yet it is always 10 degrees warmer with very little wind. We source this Clone 115 from the north 2 rows that are located in the 2 acres of east/west rows that grow in chalk rock soils.  In the glass this Pinot displays a beautiful color of light rose petal and teaberry that sets the stage for a nose of strawberry, flowers and tea leaf. In the mouth it is bright and enticinglh flavorful displaying wild strawberry fruit, wet earth, candied cherry, raspberry and tobacco. Velvety, pure and polished finish shows impeccable acid balance and smooth silky tanins. A perfect complement for grilled meats, pasta and roasted lamb.

Blair Estate 2016 Pinot Gris

Using free run and a light press, 50% of the juice was fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels; the other 50% in small stainless steel barrels to preserve the lush fruit character.  Battonag, lees stirring, was done once a week. The result is a limited release of only 175 cases that is everything a Pinot Gris should be: Ripe and muscular offering Asian pear, green melon, kiwi and peach backed by refreshing acidity, finishing with a dried pineapple note and chalky tannins.  Made in a drier "Alsatian style" it is a natural pairing for shellfish, chicken and pork.
