2020 Cherry Red

Production Notes
68% Zinfandel, 18% Syrah, 12% Mourvedre, 2% Tempranillo

Bright red cherries jump out of the glass, intermingled with gingerbread cookies and drying cedar planks.  Deep ruby color hints at the smooth and rich mouthfeel awaiting.  The wine rolls across the pallet with rich pomegranate, cherry clafoutis, and spicy Saigon cinnamon.  Firm tannins and enfolded with a full soft mouthfeel, all of which linger long on the pallet.  This wine will age and develop through 2032, but is ready to be enjoyed immediately.  One hour decant recommended if enjoyed before 2025.

enjoy with: braised oxtail, winter stews, roast squab, charred octopus, charcuterie, feta

The original Zinfandel blend in the Linne Calodo cannon, first made in 1998, Cherry Red is perhaps the most coveted wine in our collection. Since his days in college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Matt's relationship with the Cherry Vineyard is one filled with great wines, good friends and wonderful memories. Named after Elmer and Mary Cherry and planted in 1977, this dry farmed, head-trained zinfandel vineyard continuously produces an intense fruit that is blended for balance.
