The Martian

77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot

77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, three varietals not seen anywhere else in the Linne Calodo cannon, The Martian is simultaneously distinct and yet familiar. It offers the same elegance and finesse found in all Linne Calodo blends, with a medium body that is perfectly balanced between acidity and tannin to give a smooth and enveloping mouthfeel. Mulberry and red currant are interlaced with the warm aromas of a rack of lamb sizzling in the oven and wet granite after the rain.  Dark red winter pomegranate gushes across the tongue on first sip, with black truffle and notes of caramel dancing through the long and lingering finish.   This back and forth between fruit and earth creates a wine that draws you in, every sip discovering another flavor. The Martian has many many years ahead of it, if you can resist the urge to devour it now. Over time the wine will deepen, the French oak it aged in integrating and further enhancing the blend. However consumed now it already rewards the drinker with incredible complexity and balance. Enjoy now through 2037.
