In 2003, Linne Calodo's first vintage of Slacker was born and through 2010 continued to be a portfolio staple until they totally slacked and forgot to make it again. The ethos of Slacker was always described by winemaker Matt Trevisan as, "wine representing not only the winemaker, but the idea that wines should be fun and relaxed." Forever akin to the Slacker lifestyle, they decided to bring back the Slacker name in a much more appropriate way. Now its own label, Trevisan crafted two fun blends that showcase his ability to constantly keep creating and pioneering the exciting possibilities of the Paso Robles wine region.
Zinfandel classed up with a little Syrah and Graciano gives you all the jam and fruit of a Zin, but with the more elegant texture and length of a Rhone blend. Plums and pomegranates envelope the nose and palate on this warm and inviting Zinfandel. It pops with juices as it rolls across the tongue, with a lingering flavor of roasted almonds and star anise. This winerides low and broad in the mouth, filling out in a comforting and potent embrace. It will pair with everything from brisket, to barbecue, to chocolate cake with its rich aromatics and flavor, yet is light enough to be enjoyed on its own. It will continue to show off through 2026.
