Blackstone Winery Delectable Red 2011

Member Review by tmindt:

I thought I was ordering the 2011 Delectable Red from Blackstone as it is very good. What I received in stead was the 2010 Red Blend which is not even close to the same quality and taste. Total wine was very good about giving me a refund and showed me that the supplier had assigned the same SKU for both wines. BEWARE of this!!

Sonoma County has always been Blackstone’s home and inspiration. Since our beginning we’ve established a reputation for consistently delivering balanced, reliable wines of uncompromising quality. For nearly 20 years, we’ve cultivated close ties with grape growers and viticulturists throughout Sonoma County. Both our inspiration and our home, Sonoma remains the heart of Blackstone. You’ll find the region’s signature style blended into every bottle. As a grape-growing region, Sonoma County is like no other place on earth. With redwood forests, benchlands, hillsides, and nearly 80 miles of majestic coastline, Sonoma offers a wide variety of microclimates, soils, and terrain. This uniquely diverse region supports several different grape varieties but is best known for its lush Merlots and full-bodied Cabernets. Sonoma County is a designated American Viticultural Area (AVA) made up of thirteen distinctly different World-Class wine growing appellations. Each appellation and each vineyard within that appellation contributes something special - it is from this vibrant flavor palate that complex, expressive wines emerge. At Blackstone, we find Sonoma County inspiring. Each different AVA contributes something unique and special to the final blend. Our Sonoma Reserve wines, in particular, exemplify Sonoma’s signature style, and help set the standard carried through to our Winemaker’s Select wines. “Sonoma County is one of the most amazing places in the world to live and make wine,” observes Winemaker Gary Sitton. “There’s no place like it. The immense diversity—from the coastline to the mountains, valleys, and rivers—still leaves me in awe. For me, tapping into this range of growing conditions is fundamental to making beautifully expressive wines from Sonoma County.” From the start, our goal has been to produce smooth, flavorful, harmonious wines with rich fruit, supple texture, and balanced oak. Early on, this approach found its ideal expression in our Merlot, which soon became — and still remains — America’s favorite Merlot. Over the years, the same passion for consistent, balanced wines has expanded to new varieties bearing Blackstone’s trademark label. Our Winemaker’s Select wines are sourced from premier growing regions throughout California, each meticulously selected to contribute certain nuances to the final blend. Drawing from the best parcels in the same areas year after year ensures Winemaker’s Select wines maintain the consistency that is Blackstone’s heritage. Our signature style and quality is elevated in our Sonoma Reserve wines, which are sourced from Sonoma’s world-class vineyards. Each vineyard site contributes distinct characteristics that uniquely define the region. Through it all, Blackstone has stayed true to the approach inspired by our Sonoma roots - to craft wines that complement food and any occasion in which you celebrate the things in life you can count on.
