2013 Linne Calodo "Nemesis" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (Previously $75)

SKU #1249765 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Checking in as 82% Syrah, 14% Mourvedre and 4% Grenache, the 2013 Nemesis Syrah has lots of blackcurrants and blackberry fruit, caramelized meats, smoked earth and licorice aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and lively, it's slightly mid-weight and forward through the middle, yet has exceptional purity and overall balance... Focusing exclusively on blends, Linne Calodo’s Matt Trevisan makes some of the sexist, most silky and seamless wines out there. He’s excelled in both 2012 and 2013. (JD)  (8/2015)

93 points Vinous

 Vivid ruby. High-pitched dark berry, floral pastille and Asian spice scents are complemented by zesty mineral and white pepper flourishes. Sappy and precise in the mouth, offering nervy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that deepen and expand with aeration. This concentrated, lithe wine finishes with excellent clarity and smooth, slow-building tannins. (JR)  (9/2015)

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.
