2012 Linne Calodo "Rising Tides" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1206519 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 In the same ballpark, the 2012 Rising Tides checks in as a blend of 37% Grenache, 34% Syrah and 29% Mourvedre. Deeper and richer than the Sticks and Stones, it offers knockout cassis, blackberry, ground herbs, pepper and plenty of minerality in its sexy, full-bodied, seamless personality. There's enough mid-palate depth and fine tannin here to keep this drinking great for another 7-8 years, if not more. (JD)  (8/2014)

93 points Vinous

 Dark red cherries, plums, sage, rosemary, mint, leather and tobacco meld together in the 2012 Rising Tides. The inclusion of 20% whole clusters adds attractive aromatic overtones This is another perfumed, expressive wine built more on delicacy than power. (AG)  (7/2014)

90 points Wine Spectator

 A zesty blend that builds in complexity. The cherry jam, roasted herb and pepper aromas lead to dense flavors of boysenberry, sage and loamy mineral. The tannins tighten the finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2021. (TF)  (12/2014)

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. Click for a list of bestselling items from the United States.


- 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.
