2010 Linne Calodo "Outsider" Paso Robles Red Blend

SKU #1149873 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 As opposed to some of the other Zinfandel based wines here, the 2010 Outsider has a darker fruit profile and more textural depth. The 2010 is juicy, inviting and full-bodied all the way through to the seamless finish. This is another gorgeous wine from Linne Calodo. The 2010 is 80% Zinfandel, 17% Syrah and 3% Mourvedre from Heaton. The 2010 spent 25 days on the skins and was aged in a combination of American and French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. (AG)  (8/2012)

 (80% zinfandel, 17% syrah and 3% mourvedre): Opaque purple. Powerfully scented, alluring bouquet of candied raspberry, blackberry, incense and Asian spices. Silky red and dark berry flavors stain the palate, delivering solid punch without any excess wight. Finishes clean and sweet, with impressive persistence. Trevisan told me that the pH for this wine was 'right below 3.4,' which is roughly the same as a lively New World pinot noir. (JR)  (12/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Bold, big and ripe, this is jammed with personality and delicious rich fruit. Raspberry and toasted spice aromas lead to layered huckleberry, cracked pepper and smoky caramel flavors. Zinfandel, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2018.  (2/2013)

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.
