Product Description

  • Neatly disguised as an underdog, this vintage shows it has been working out with mourvedre dominating the blend. This will will hit its mark with boysenberry liquor, fig, and leather. This wine drinks nicely now and for the next six years.
  • Founded in 1998 by Matt and Maureen Trevisan, Linne Calodo's name pays homage to the rich soils of a small area on the Westside of Paso Robles. We grow grapes, make wines and foster an environment that shies away from traditional, rigid and archetypal industry norms.

Expert Ratings

Ratings   Vintage Source Flavors
Tanzer - 93 Details: ($48; 51% syrah, 38% grenache and 11% mourvedre) Ruby-red. Seductively perfumed nose offers a wild array of dark berry and floral scents, along with sexy baking spices and vanilla. Strikingly fresh and juicy, with pliant blueberry and boysenberry flavors, velvety tannins and an explosion of Asian spices on the finish. Quite suave and delicious already, but I have no doubt that it will reward a few more years in the cellar. 2005 Tanzer berry, blueberry, boysenberry, spices, vanilla
Tanzer - 92 Details: ($48; 40% syrah, 40% grenache and 20% mourvedre) Ruby-red. Musky, high-toned aromas of wild berries and mocha. Sweet, creamy, suave and inviting; a lush, rich fruit bomb that also possesses underlying structure. This reminded me of a ripe-year Bandol. Finishes long and sweetly tannic, with very ripe red fruit flavors. Today this is showing its grenache and mourvedre more than its syrah side. 2004 Tanzer berries, mocha
Tanzer - 90 Details: ($38; 42% syrah, 37% grenache and 21% mourvedre; bottled a week prior to my visit) Deep red-ruby. Deeper, wilder aromas of black cherry liqueur, raspberry, gunflint and meat; dominated today by the syrah component. Big, rich and creamy, with a silkytexture and strong cherry/raspberry fruit. Has the richness to support its elevated alcohol. Finishes with building tannins and excellent persistence. 2003 Tanzer black cherry, gunflint, meat, raspberry
WineEnthusiast - 93 Details: With a higher percentage of Syrah than Sticks and Stones, Linne’s Rising Tides is darker and deeper. It suggests black cherries veering into black currants, with a rich, dark chocolate note, and a finish of sweet, charry oak. Nonetheless it’s a dry wine, and a little soft. 2003 WineEnthusiast cherries, dark chocolate, oak

Wine Terms

Name Value
United States Wineries exist in all fifty states, but the most predominant (and best) wine comes from Northern California, Oregon, and Washington State, with New York gaining a foothold in the industry. American wines make up about 75% of all wine sales in the US. The appellation system uses the term AVA (American Viticultural Area) to determine where wines were produced, but grape varieties can be planted anywhere in the country. American wineries generally use varietal labeling, and government regulations require that the variety on the label must make up at least 75% of the blend (in Oregon it’s 90%). The words reserve, special selection, private reserve, classic, and so on have no legal definition in the US. Some wineries use these terms to indicate their better wines; others use the words as a marketing tool to move lower quality wines off the shelf.
California California produces the majority of wine made in the United States. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir dominate the wine production in California, but many other varietials thrive in the California climate. Many fine wines are produced in California using Mediterranean grapes.
