Idlewild Barbera Fox Hill 2017

Idlewild Wines is based in Healdsburg, CA. Located in a funky concrete warehouse turned simple winery, the focus is not on a tasting room nor any sense of grandiosity but instead on the vineyards and what is in the bottle. Grapes are sourced from various locations around Northern California from growers who feel more like partners.

The criterion for selecting a vineyard is quite simple: the site has to be compelling. Attributes that create a special vineyard are uniqueness in climate, varietal, soil, vine age, and vineyard practice. Perhaps most important though, the vineyard must show quality, balance, and soul.

This wine is wonderful. With such amazing natural acidity, a deeper and more brooding wine can still find balance. Amarena black cherries, earth, balsamic, violets, quinine, graphite and macerated plums are aromatic highlights. A full and lush front and mid palate are balanced by the firm and fresh structure.
