SKU #1471193 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The Zinfandel-dominated 2018 Problem Child includes 20% Syrah and tiny amounts of Carignan and Graciano and spent 15 months in 25% new French and American oak. Inky colored with powerful notes of black and blue fruits, sappy herbs, smoked game, and ground pepper, it hits the palate with a lush, full-bodied, sexy texture that carries light tannins and brilliant length. Inner quote mark (9/2020)

K&L Notes

Linne Calodo, along with Saxum, may be one of the most important local wineries for the rise of “cult wine” in Paso. There was never much wine to go around, so their mailing list filled out fast. Thus, the myth was born, as so few people were able to get their hands on them. But the quality was undeniable, and so, the legend was born. Now we have the rare opportunity to actually promote their singular Problem Child. Winery notes: 70% Zinfandel, 20% Syrah, 5% Carignan, 5% Graciano. If you are looking for Zinfandel, look no further. This is one of the best examples of Zinfandel in the whole state of California. As usual, the bold audacity of Zinfandel is tamed by skillful blending with Syrah, Carignan, and Graciano. It’s like obedience school for the Problem Child, each grape helps develop the wine into a knowledgeable smart ass that will test the boundaries. The rich and bold wine elicits flavors of cranberries, raspberries, orange peel and cinnamon. There’s a wonderful mouthfeel that hints to memories of gram cracker dust, toast and blueberry jam. Delicious today or consume over the next 5-7 years.
