V. 2015


47% Grenache, 32% Mourvedre, 14% Syrah, 7% Carignan

What was I thinking when I named this wine? To overthink things, paralysis through analysis, or a thorough study of the quest and its surroundings. Either way, the Overthinker represents my personal diary of making wines from the ground up. The pleasure of planting vines, patiently waiting for maturity and documenting my yearly fermentations in a vintage-by-vintage bottling of the Overthinker. There is no other wine in my library that says where I’ve been and where I’m going. The 2015 is fabulous, an elegant vintage that is aromatically stunning with layers of peach blossom, lavender and cedar box. Quenching on the palate, lush blackberries dance amongst vanilla bean and soft tobacco flavor. Bottle-aged here on site at Linne Calodo for the last year for your enjoyment now. Drink now through 2028.


“Through the turmoil, the questioning, and the unrest, there emerged a vision perfect in its simplicity.”
