Linne Calodo Overthinker 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Dark, glistening ruby. A complex, deeply perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, incense and pungent flowers, along with suggestions of vanilla, woodsmoke and olive paste that build in the glass. Alluringly sweet black raspberry, boysenberry, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors she superb focus and are enlivened by zesty spice and mineral flourishes. Discreet, fine-grained tannins sneak in on an impressively long, blue-fruit- and floral-driven finish that shows zero rough edges.
Lastly, the 2017 Overthinker checks in as 52% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 9% Carignan, 7% Mourvèdre, and 5% Graciano. It has a beautiful bouquet of kirsch liqueur, wildflowers, candied violets, and orange blossom. This carries to a full-bodied red with a rounded, elegant texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's beautiful today yet will keep for at least a decade.
