New accolades for one of our favorite club wines
At Firstleaf our experts are always on the lookout for great wine. The Idlewright 2013 Opulent Red came from Napa Valley, California and was just awarded 94 points and a platinum medal FOR THE SECOND TIME!
This two-time, 94 point platinum medal winning wine is described as:
"Rich and luxurious, this predominantly Merlot blend exhibits ripe red-fruit flavors, nicely integrated tannins and a subtle note of graphite for additional complexity. A Platinum award-winner at the 2018 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition." - Robert Whitley of Wine Review Online
Another critic says:
Merlot is undergoing a bit of a renaissance thanks to wines like this, that aren't trying to act like other varieties, instead choosing to embrace their own unique characteristics. It's all here - cherry, blackberry, a touch of dried herbs, supple tannic structure and a long well-integrated finish."
