Linne Calodo Cellars-Rising Tides-Syrah-Grenache-Mourvedre-Paso Robles-California-2008-15.8% Alcohol-$54.00-A nose of dark fruits and spice, dark purple in color.   A full-bodied Rhone blend, with flavors of blueberry, black raspberry, and cassis, finishes with licorice and herbs and spices.   A delicious wine, just elegant now.  Linne Calodo is a great place to visit if in the Central Coast area.           RP-92           WE-93           CR-92           Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
