2009 Linne Calodo "Rising Tides" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1110431

92 points Robert Parker: "The 2009 Rising Tides emerges from the glass with layers of dark red fruit, prunes, leather, licorice and spices. It is one of the deeper, more textured wines in this lineup owing to the significant presence of Mourvedre and Syrah. The plushness and darkness of the fruit carries through nicely to the muscular finish. The blend is 40% Mourvedre, 30% Syrah and 30% Grenache. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017." (08/11) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Assertive aromas of red berry preserves, Asian spices and floral oil; smells like there's more grenache in here. Stains the palate with musky red fruit and candied rose flavors, picking up spiciness with air. Very fresh and precise blend with strong finishing cut and an echo of sweet red fruit." (Nov/Dec 11)

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.
