Professional Wine Reviews for Linne Calodo The Contrarian White Blend 2013

Rated 92 by Decanter
Bright, hazy straw color. Potent, high-pitched aromas of Meyer lemon, fresh pineapple and pear skin, with hints of chamomile and spicy basil in the background. Sappy, penetrating and minerally on the palate, offering concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a late-arriving gingery nuance. Finishes with outstanding focus and length, leaving a sexy floral note behind. (Vinous)
Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Contrarian is an interesting mix of 57% Grenache Blanc, 20% Picpoul, 14% Viognier and the balance Roussanne. It has fantastic richness and depth, yet still seems crisp and lively, with notes of white flowers, poached pears, pineapple and honeycomb all emerging from the glass. This medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced white has juicy acidity and a savory, dry finish that perfect for pairing with food. Enjoy bottles over the coming couple of years.

Winery Linne Calodo

Region: California

California as a wine producing region has grown in size and importance considerably over the past couple of centuries, and today is the proud producer of more than ninety percent of the United States' wines. Indeed, if California was a country, it would be the fourth largest producer of wine in the world, with a vast range of vineyards covering almost half a million acres. The secret to California's success as a wine region has a lot to do with the high quality of its soils, and the fact that it has an extensive Pacific coastline which perfectly tempers the blazing sunshine it experiences all year round. The winds coming off the ocean cool the vines, and the natural valleys and mountainsides which make up most of the state's wine regions make for ideal areas in which to cultivate a variety of high quality grapes.

Country: United States

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.
