A friend had mentioned that we should check out Linne Calodo because they had consistently got high ratings from Wine Spectator. The winery is a little tricky to find - if you do not know about it in advance I would guess you would drive straight by as it looks like someone's house. We knew about it and still drove by!! One of the servers mentioned that they like keeping the winery "low key" to prevent a lot of people driving in. Seemingly Linne Calodo has a bit of a cult following and their mailing list has a 1.5 year wait. This definitely made us more interested in tasting the wines. The tasting room is small and caters to small numbers. The servers are friendly and I thought the wines were very good. Very unique. Rhone and Zinfandel blends. Small production - 4000 cases

65% Grenache, 24% Mourvedre, 11% Syrah. Best wine (tasting) at the winery. Good full mouth fruit with very smooth finish. A nice blend. I am not sure how it would last but is drinking very well out of the bottle

74% Zinfandel, 12% Mourvedre, 8% Alicante, 6% Syrah. Interesting blend. Floral on the nose, with good color and fruit. An easy wine to drink. "Perfumy"
