2015 Idlewild "The Bird-Flora & Fauna" Mendocino Red Blend

SKU #1294207 89-91 points Vinous

 The 2015 The Bird Flora & Fauna Red, Idlewild's Dolcetto/Barbera/Nebbiolo blend, is absolutely delicious. Deep, bold and flavorful, the 2015 delivers lovely complexity in a fresh, vinous style best enjoyed over the next few years. The plumpness of the fruit is all Barbera, while Dolcetto and Nebbiolo add structure and aromatics. A kick of acidity on the finish keeps the flavors bright. Best of all the Bird Flora & Fauna Red is a terrific value. (AG)  (7/2016)

What an interesting wine this is! Lighter, red fruited nose with a nice whiff of minerals to it. On the palate, dark red cherry and red plum flavors. A really nice, long finish of tart red fruits and minerals. This is a great food wine because of its versatility. A super, super bargain as well! Ding, ding, ding. Winner!

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
