    January 22, 2018 - Exactly what a domestically-grown/made Italian varietal should be: plenty of grippy tannins and old world funk with just enough CA fruitiness to round it out.

    September 7, 2017 - I failed to heed my own advice, and served a bottle of this as part of a tasting this week. It was really tannic. There is still a lot of fruit, so let it sleep.

    May 24, 2017 - Normally the Idlewild wines are so drinkable I don't know how to stop. In this case, some of the baby fat had melted away, and the wine was very tight/clenched. I gave it 24 hours to loosen up, and it showed a lot more fruit/depth, but it still had a lot of tannin. California Dolcetto with a lot of tannin? Go figure!

    The wine has plenty of depth to wait for some softening, but beware the teeth for now. I am really looking forward to what happens with this wine in 2-3 more years.

    January 8, 2017 - Light red. Cranberry and pomegranate notes- tart acidity gives this plenty of lift when paired with tomato based sauces. Very enjoyable.
