Linne Calodo Problem Child 2016
Problem Child: know one, have one, or are one. This is an opulent Zinfandel blend from the Willow Creek District of Paso Robles. We take dry-farmed, head-trained Zinfandel, manicure the vines and clusters for perfection and pick when the time is just right. Blended with modest amount of Syrah to widen the palate, the wine moves up the sophistication ladder; the crescendo comes from the splash of Mourvedre which rounds out the edges. The Problem Child, in all honesty, is inappropriately named and should instead be called The Gift Child. Drink now through 2025.
