Idlewild Wines Flora and Fauna Red

Idlewild Wines Flora and Fauna Red

Regular price $29.99

The brainchild of Sam Bilbro, Idlewild focuses entirely on Piedmontese varieties grown in California. In our humble opinions, these are the best iterations of Italian grapes being made outside of Italy. Oh yeah, Sam is the some of Marietta Cellars founder Chris Bilbro, his brother Scott now runs that operation, and his other brother Jake runs Limerick Lane. The Bilbro boys are as nice as they come, and their wines are equally delightful

Sam's Flora and Fauna Red, a Barbera-led blend that also includes Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, Grignolino, and Freisa is stunning this vintage. Fruit also comes from Fox Hill and Lost Hills, but there is also a sprinkling of grapes from Idlewild's newly owned (and yet unnamed) site in the Russian River Valley.

'The 2021 Red Flora and Fauna is fabulous. This is the first vintage that includes significant portions of Grignolino and Freisa in the blend. Bright and punchy, with terrific energy, the 2021 is absolutely gorgeous. Dark red cherry, rose petal, mint, blood orange and spice all race across the palate. This vibrant, mid-weight Piedmontese red blend is absolutely irresistible.' - Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media - 93 points
