Winemaker Jeffrey Blair Notes
Only 400 cases produced. Delfina’s Vineyard is the very heart and soul of the Blair Estates’ label. Named after our family matriarch, the vineyard sits on the very first property purchased by our grandparents in the 1920s. Whole berry fermentation was started with cultured yeasts in small open top tanks. The cap was manually punched down for optimum extraction and structure. The wine was transferred to a combination of Francois Frere and Seguin Moreau Burgundy barrels, with forty-five percent being new, for 10 months of aging. In the glass, the our signature “Delfina’s” Pinot Noir displays a nose of rose petal and spice combined with bing cherry and strawberry. This spicy fruit tandem carries onto the palate, joined with a light to ...more... uch of warm, vanillin-oak. Medium acidity and silky tannins give the wine weight in the mouth and carry it to a long finish.
