2014 Idlewild The Bird Red - USA, California, North Coast, Mendocino County (1/14/2018)
Red sauce Italian food at the Bueker household calls for Idlewild 'The Bird.' A couple of years of cellar time has calmed this blend down a bit. The Dolcetto tannins had backed off, while the wine retained much of its original freshness. Red fruit and warm herbs made for a spot on match with the food. If there is a go-to red in my cellar, this is it.
