Having only tasted young Linne Calodo wines before now, this was a treat. Exuberant and complex nose of dark fruit, licorice, and herbs, typical of LC. What really blew me away was that first sip... immediately playful and serious at the same time. Rich, dense, dark fruit, but soooo light on its feet. Perfect balance, bright and dark simultaneously, and still plenty of acid to provide a long, lovely finish. This is like the first date you want to replay a thousand times.
With so much fruit and acid there, I can see this wine doing very well for at least a few more years, but there is absolutely no reason to hold it unless you have multiple bottles. It's in the perfect place right now.
Tasted immediately after opening. We needed a heavy hitter tonight to match a spicy meatloaf. This seemed a good candidate. And it was. Lush nose of ripe black fruit and anise. Very pleasing on the palate. Typical rich LC red and black fruit with anise and sweetness. But a bit softer and more retrained than other of their wines that I have tried in the past. Excellent acidity in the long finish. Very good.
I think this might have been my first time tasting the Overthinker, but it was another nice bottle in the typical Linne Calodo style. A lot of fruit, with red/blue/black flavors, but well balanced and complex.
Lovely wine. Deep purple in the glass. Soft rich fruit, in a blend of Grenache 40%, Syrah 40%, and Mourvedre 20%. The Grenache made it cheerful and fruity, the Syrah gave it some depth, and the Mourvedre added the undercurrent of structure. Not decanted; it seemed to work right out of the bottle. A lush experience.
