2006 Linne Calodo "Nemesis" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1127870 94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2006 Nemesis (which I rated 93+ in issue #177) continues to perform beautifully. A blend of 82% Syrah, 14% Mourvedre, and the rest Grenache, the wine exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as a sweet blackberry, cassis, charcoal, lavender, graphite, and floral-scented bouquet, terrific fruit, a full-bodied, French-like personality, and impressive purity as well as length. Consume it over the next decade. These are very individualistic and impeccably well-made wines that deserve considerable attention. Moreover, prices are very fair given the wines’ high quality.

Outer quote mark The 2006 Linne Calodo Nemesis (a blend of 82% Syrah, 14% Mourvedre and 4% Grenache) has spiced red fruits, boysenberry, meat, blood and licorice aromas leading into a awesome palate. Rich, sweet and with a mouth coating texture, this has a serious finish. Inner quote mark (11/2009)

91 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright purple. Intensely perfumed bouquet of blueberry, cassis, black pepper and spicecake. Sappy dark berry flavors are sharply etched and gain sweetness with air, picking up fine-grained tannins. Brighter red fruits appear on the finish, which is impressively precise and energetic. Here again, I'd have guessed this to have a higher percentage of grenache. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2008)
