2006 Linne Calodo "Cherry Red" Paso Robles Red Blend

SKU #1051551 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The prodigious 2006 Cherry Red (64% Zinfandel, 18% Syrah, and 18% Mourvedre) smells like the essence of cherry jam interwoven with framboise, licorice, garrigue, and earth. Fabulous ripeness, a beautiful medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and stunning elegance result in a terrific example of what Paso Robles can produce when blends are done by a talented viticulturist and winemaker. (RP)  (6/2008)

 Vivid red color. Wide-open, red-fruit dominated nose is complicated by Asian spices and smoky minerals; there's a pinot-like elegance to this that I find pretty alluring. Sweet raspberry and candied cherry flavors are gently firmed by dusty tannins, which also add back-end grip. Finishes with impressive clarity and no rough edges. This is admirably graceful and balanced. (JR)  (12/2008)

K&L Notes

From Robert Parker: "Matt Trevisan is one of Paso Robles’ up-and-coming stars. He’s doing everything right, and it’s good to see him planting a new estate vineyard of nearly 18 acres, building a new wine cellar, and taking full advantage of the gorgeous limestone soils on the hillsides of West Paso Robles. Trevisan has also been ahead of the curve in realizing that the finest Paso Robles wines are usually blends. Undeniably, he has demonstrated a Midas touch when it comes to assembling innovative blends. He is also the only winemaker in this region that I know of who is doing terrific work with Zinfandel, using it as the core component in some diverse as well as creative blends. His wines spend time in an assortment of different sized oak barrels, little of it new."

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.
