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 has long been the New World's most important and prodigious wine producing regions, with a history which stretches back to the 18th century and the Spanish pioneers who settled here. Today, California produces vast quantities of wine, and if it were a country, it would be the fourth largest producer of wine on earth. Despite experiencing many problems in the mid 20th century, including a very serious blight which almost crippled the state's wine industry, the ideal terroir and excellent climate ensured that Californian wines soon became the envy of the New World once again. California produces a vast range of wines, and utilizes a long list of fine grape varietals, with many wineries and their produce more closely resembling those of France and other Old World countries in regards to character, practices and flavors

Country: United States

The first European settlers to consider growing grapevines in the United States must have been delighted when they discovered the now famous wine regions within California, Oregon and elsewhere. Not even in the Old World are there such fertile valleys, made ideal for vine cultivation by the blazing sunshine, long, hot summers and oceanic breezes. As such, it comes as little surprise that today more than eighty-nine percent of United States wines are grown in the valleys and on the mountainsides of California, where arguably some of the finest produce in the world is found. However, American wine does not begin and end with California, and due to the vast size of the country and the incredible range of terrains and climates found within the United States, there is probably no other country on earth which produces such a massive diversity of wines. From ice wines in the northern states, to sparkling wines, aromatized wines, fortified wines, reds, whites, rosés and more, the United States has endless surprises in store for lovers of New World wines.
