LINNE CALODO 2013 PROPRIETARY RED "PERFECTIONIST" PASO ROBLES 750mL

A blend of 68% Syrah, 17% Mourvèdre, and 15% Grenache, this is winemaker Matt Trevisan's playful attempt at being less concerned with perfection and focusing on being dynamic, changing things on the fly and creating a wine that is truly its own. Perfectionist uses the coolest climate syrah blocks from the estate, he ferments them whole cluster, getting a phenolic structure that stands out from other wines. Cofermenting with the grenache and mourvédre allows for a rare, individualistic wine. This is the opposite of diligent blending. Aged in concrete. Drink through 2023

ANTONIO GALLONI'S VINOUS MEDIA 94 POINTS - "Not a year goes by when Matt Trevisan doesn't tell me that he's still fine-tuning his style and thinking as much as possible about ways to reach his potential as a winemaker--and, increasingly, as a grower. A quick look at the names of his wines gives one an idea of his curious nature and he's one of the more reflective producers that I visit, anywhere. He reminds me a lot, in fact, of Jean-Louis Chave, another young vigneron who, like Trevisan, is constantly questioning his own work even though his wines are consistently among the very best examples of his appellation."

"Opaque ruby. Complex, assertively perfumed bouquet of ripe black and blue fruit liqueur and floral pastilles, with mineral and cola nuances coming up slowly. Sweet, concentrated and expansive on the palate, offering intense blueberry and boysenberry flavors sharpened by juicy acidity. Distinctly suave and seamless wine with wonderful closing focus and persistence and gentle framing tannins."

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "Focusing exclusively on blends, Linne Calodo’s Matt Trevisan makes some of the sexist, most silky and seamless wines out there. He’s excelled in both 2012 and 2013."

"Another medium to full-bodied, lightly textured, elegant effort is the 2013 Perfectionist. Made from 68% Syrah, 17% Mourvedre and 15% Grenache, it shows plenty of Mourvedre savoriness to go with ample red and black fruits, smoked meats and a touch of olive tapenade. Like all of Matt's 2013s, it's seamless and perfectly balanced, with lots to love. Drink it anytime over the coming 8-10 years."
