In the glass, the 2012 Blair Pinot Noir displays a nose of rose petal, anise, and spice combine with bing cherry and strawberry. This spicy fruit tandem carries onto the palate, joined with a light touch of warm, vanillin-oak. Medium acidity and silky tannins give the wine weight in the mouth and carry it to a long finish.

Bright ruby in color, typical for the variety. The nose is juicy, subtle, with jammy character of wild strawberry, mocha, sweet cream and vanilla. The second impression is with noble earthy and meaty tones, black olives. Splendid structure: full body with velvet tannins and fresh wild fruits in the long, grainy, impressive finish. Wine with a distinguish, potential for aging.

This wine is peaking right now, with fascinating aromas of exotic red fruits, sesame oil, maple syrup, hoisin sauce, Korean BBQ spareribs and smoked, coffee-crusted meats. It’s in your face on the palate too, with pomegranate and rhubarb ripeness mixing into espresso and meatiness.
