2005 Linne Calodo "Cherry Red" Paso Robles Red Blend

SKU #1051723 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2005 Cherry Red (a blend of 64% Zinfandel, 28% Mourvedre, and the rest Syrah) offers plenty of Allspice, black raspberry, cherry, and currant notes in a medium to full-bodied, deep, chewy style with loads of fruit flavors intermixed with earth and spice. Consume this beauty over the next 5-7 years. (RP)  (8/2007)

 (64% Zinfandel, 28% Mourvedre and 8% Syrah) Dark red. Bright red fruits on the nose, with sexy baking spices and a floral element adding nuance. Deep and sweet but energetic and precise, with a vibrancy to its raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Silky tannins build on the long, pliant finish.  (11/2007)

Wine Spectator

 Tightly wound yet laserlike in focus, with ripe raspberry and toasty spice aromas and concentrated black cherry, blueberry and charred anise flavors. Firm, minerally tannins grip the finish. Zinfandel, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Best from 2008 through 2013. 435 cases made.  (11/2007)

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.
