All In a Day’s Work: Linne Calodo

Membership in The Paso Robles Wine Club Pairs Beautifully with Your Favorite Foods

Running the top wine club on California’s Central Coast is definitely a job with benefits, but when it comes to picking unique wines from Paso Robles Wine Country to include in The Paso Robles Wine Club shipments, it means doing a lot of wine tasting. It doesn’t much sound like working, but when we taste wines to include in The Paso Robles Wine Club shipments, we take our work seriously because we want our wine members to enjoy the wines as much as we do. Our initial tastings are done without food, but once our notes are complete, there’s nothing more that we enjoy doing than pairing Paso Robles Wines with food.

This past weekend, we enjoyed a vertical tasting of Linne Calodo’s Nemesis, so we thought we’d share a few notes about the wines, along with dishes to pair them.

Nemesis 2011: Delicious, big, and well-crafted. This wine is the perfect match for Lamb Gyros on pitas with garlicky yogurt (87% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 3% Grenache).

 Nemesis 2010: Bacon fat, cocoa, and boysenberries will lure you deeper and deeper into the glass—and you’ll put up zero resistance. Enjoy this beauty with BBQ pork, outdoors, with plenty of napkins (77% Syrah, 18% Mourvèdre, 5% Grenache).

Nemesis 2009: Seductive, alluring, and ever so delicious with nuances of ripe black fruit, graham crackers, and a hint of cigar—all perfect for a fatty rack of lamb roasted to perfection (87% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 3% Grenache).

Nemesis 2007: Your palate will dance when it meets this wine. Blueberry cheesecake on the nose, followed by notes of boysenberry, cola, and roasted meat—all perfectly well paired with either a Hearst Ranch burger grilled to perfection, or pizza with grilled onions, cheese, and aged sausage  (80% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre, 5% Grenache).
