As opposed to some of the other Zinfandel based wines here, the 2010 Outsider has a darker fruit profile and more textural depth. The 2010 is juicy, inviting and full-bodied all the way through to the seamless finish. This is another gorgeous wine from Linne Calodo. The 2010 is 80% Zinfandel, 17% Syrah and 3% Mourvedre from Heaton. The 2010 spent 25 days on the skins and was aged in a combination of American and French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. (AG)
(80% zinfandel, 17% syrah and 3% mourvedre): Opaque purple. Powerfully scented, alluring bouquet of candied raspberry, blackberry, incense and Asian spices. Silky red and dark berry flavors stain the palate, delivering solid punch without any excess wight. Finishes clean and sweet, with impressive persistence. Trevisan told me that the pH for this wine was 'right below 3.4,' which is roughly the same as a lively New World pinot noir. (JR)
Bold, big and ripe, this is jammed with personality and delicious rich fruit. Raspberry and toasted spice aromas lead to layered huckleberry, cracked pepper and smoky caramel flavors. Zinfandel, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2018.
