2007 Linne Calodo "Rising Tides" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1064792 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Similarly deep ruby colored with no evolution in its color, the 2007 Rising Tides checks in as a Syrah dominated blend that includes 35% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre. Dark fruits, olive tapenade, violets and spiced meat notes all emerge from this incredibly elegant, silky red that has good acidity, no hard edges, medium-bodied richness and a good finish.  (7/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The deeper-colored 2007 Rising Tides (44% Syrah, 35% Grenache, and 21% Mourvedre) reveals more licorice, damp earth, blackberry, and cassis fruit as opposed to the kirsch and raspberry characteristics found in the Sticks and Stones. With superb purity, medium to full body, ripe tannins, good freshness and definition, and a stunningly long finish. (RP)  (8/2009)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Smooth and focused, ripe yet delicate and balanced, offering a mix of red cherry, plum and blackberry fruit that's rich and complex without being heavy. Ends with hints of fresh earth, anise and chicory. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. (JL)  (2/2010)

 Bright red. Black raspberry and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of potpourri, licorice and smoky minerals. Weighty dark fruit flavors stain the palate and turn more tangy with aeration. The finish is broad, sweet and very long, with a strong echo of sappy dark berries. This was the slowest to open of this group, and should benefit from another four or five years of patience.

Country:

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.
Sub-Region:

California

- 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.
