Rare new release
Rare new release from Paso Robles cult winery Linne Calodo. Limited.
96 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Rising Tides knocks it out of the park in 2016. A blend of 77% Grenache, 14% Mourvèdre, and 9% Syrah, this ruby-tinged beauty boasts thrilling notes of black raspberries, crushed flowers, dried herbs, and incense. Beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, and elegant, it’s a sensational Grenache blend that does everything right. Brought up in a mix of concrete tanks and neutral larger French oak barrels, it’s one of the finest vintages for this cuvée to date. Drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years....I’ve written it numerous time, but Linne Calodo remains one of the reference point estates in Paso Robles. Winemaker/owner Matt Trevisan consistently puts together exotic and singular blends that deliver opulence as well as balance."
Robert Parker: "..A genius when it comes to fashioning incredible blends from Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache and Zinfandel (as well as a few others), Linne Calodo's Matt Trevisan eschews single varieties and makes seamless, elegant and character-filled wines that are always an utter joy to drink."
