2008 Linne Calodo "Overthinker" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1109231 91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2008 Overthinker (40% Grenache, 40% Syrah, and 20% Mourvedre) is the first wine from the estate vineyard. Sweet black raspberries and black currants intermixed with camphor and spring flowers are followed by a wine with a succulent, voluptuous texture, some intriguing, almost Burgundian forest floor and underbrush notes, full body, beautiful sweetness, purity, and elegance... This is one of my favorite wineries in the Central Coast. (RP)  (8/2010)

94 points Wine Spectator

 Gorgeous, ripe, juicy, supple and elegant, this displays layers of raspberry, wild berry, plum and spice flavors that are medium- to full-bodied. Rather light on its feet given its range and depth of flavors, ending with a burst of fruit and fine-grained tannins. Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre.  (3/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Glass-staining purple. Ripe, smoky aromas of blackberry and boysenberry preserves and cherry-cola, with complicating notes of licorice and dark chocolate. Broad and sweet on the palate, offering chewy dark berry flavors and a slow-building bitter chocolate quality. Distinctly rich but in no way ungainly; in fact, this is very energetic for its heftiness. Finishes supple and sweet, with a repeating licorice note and a whiplash of smoky dark fruit. 93+ (JR)  (12/2012)

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."

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.
