Linne Calodo 2017 Problem ChildIn Fine Spirits
64% Zinfandel, 19% Syrah, 14% Graciano, 3% Carignan
This is one of the best examples of Zinfandel in the whole state of California. The bold audacity of Zinfandel is tamed by skillful blending with Syrah, Carignan, and Graciano. It’s like obedience school for the Problem Child, each grape helps develop the wine into a knowledgeable smart ass that will test the boundaries. The rich and bold wine elicits flavors of red fruit, orange peel and cinnamon. There’s a wonderful mouthfeel that hints to memories of graham cracker dust, toast and blueberry jam.
