2005 Linne Calodo "Leona's" Paso Robles Rhone Blend

SKU #1051280 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A blend of 62% Zinfandel, 30% Syrah, and 8% Mourvedre, the 2005 Leone’s exhibits gorgeously sweet raspberry and black cherry fruit along with a hint of resiny pine forest, medium to full body, terrific texture and richness, and a Mediterranean-styled personality as well as mouthfeel.

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Ruby-red. Exotic, oak-spiced raspberry and candied cherry scents are brightened by zesty minerals and fresh flowers. Tangy, nicely focused red fruit flavors gain weight with air but retain energy. Finishes with excellent cut and thrust, repeating the tangy red berry qualities. (JR)  (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.
