Product Description

  • 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.

Tanzer - 88 Details: ($42; 68% zinfandel, 20% syrah and 12% mourvedre) Deep ruby-red. High-toned, rather porty aromas of spicecake and chocolate.

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.
