WTN: Idlewild TheBee WW '17...(short/boring)

by TomHill » Thu Jul 05, 2018 9:44 am

In the mood last night for nothing serious, so cracked:
1. Idlewild TheBee Flora&Fauna White NorthCoast WW (11.6%; www.IdlewildWines.com) 2017: Med.yellow color; very fragrant floral/pear/peach/quince some spicy/cardamon light perfumed talc almost Timorasso-like lovely aromatic nose; lightly tart/tangy lightweight/bright fairly floral/spicy/cardamon/jasmine light perfumed talc flavor; ling lightly tart rather floral/cardamon/spicy/apple blossom/pear light perfumed talc finish; not a profound white but just absolutely delicious drinking at an attractive price.$25.00

A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. No idea what varieties or in this blend. Perhaps some Arneis or Cortese but it lack the stony minerality that thos would contribute. It resembles a lightweight Gruner or Timorasso from the aromatics.

I found it im my delete box. He makes it sound more profound a wine than what I was getting.
