Linne Calodo Problem Child 2015
Save $5.00 (5%)
The name is an homage to the first barrels of this blend. A zinfandel blend that did nothing but cause problems, demanding nights of extra attention complete with warm blankets and musical serenades. Referred to as the "Problem Child," those two barrels turned themselves around and were the beginnings of one of our most celebrated wines. You either have one, know one, or are one! While the first vintage of Problem Child in 2001 was marked by trouble with both ripening and fermenting, the Zinfandel no longer poses problems in the field or cellar. The grape vines have matured and moved out of their difficult phase. The Mourvedre lengthens the palate, while Syrah adds a dense, meaty texture that cuts the acidity of the Zinfandel. Aromas and flavors of fennel and black cherry pie complement a smooth, round mouthfeel. Aged in 500 liter puncheons of new and neutral American oak for 12 months. Drink now through 2021.
