2006 Linne Calodo "Rising Tides" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1039559 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A gorgeous offering, the 2006 Rising Tides is a blend of 44% Grenache, 42% Syrah, and 14% Mourvedre. The sexiest, most opulent wine in this portfolio, it boasts a deep ruby color along with gloriously intense candied black cherry aromas intermixed with notions of spice box, garrigue, forest floor, and licorice. Full-bodied with sweet tannins, a voluptuous texture, and beautiful purity, this stunning effort demonstrates just how delicious a blended Rhone Ranger can be. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Vivid red. Smoky red and dark berry aromas are complemented by cracked pepper and dried flowers; showing its syrah today. Sappy, sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors are supported by velvety tannins and brightened by tangy minerals. Gains weight with air while retaining focus, finishing brisk and with no tannic bite. Deftly blends energy and power, and balanced to age.  (12/2008)

Rhone Blends


United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
