Food Pairings for Linne Calodo Red Rhone Blend Paso Robles Overthinker
Fruit-forward but complex, with more subtle spice than some zins. Cherry cola, dust, and toasted notes. A wine you want to drink again and again, experiencing something different each time. Great finish.
94 points Robert Parker: The last 2007 to be released is the 2007 Outsider, a blend of 70% Zinfandel, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre. Trevisan's great strength in blending Zinfandel with Rhone varietals continues to make him the leading practitioner of these types of blends. Taking advantage of some of the old Zinfandel planted in limestone in the Paso Robles area, he does a marvelous job turning out a wine that tastes more like a Rhone Ranger than a Zinfandel. The lovely, briary fruit of this wine intermixed with some new saddle leather, earth, spice, pepper, and herbs is just beautiful. It has loads of fruit, a lush texture, medium to full body, and a heady finish. Drink it over the next 4-5 years. (Aug 2010)
