93 points "Linne Calodo’s gorgeous white wine, one of the best dry whites of the area, is the 2006 Contrarian, a blend of 68% Roussanne and 32% Viognier. This is a dry, full-bodied wine with notes of honeyed melons and citrus, a bit of pear, and some more exotic rose petal/floral notes. The wine has terrific fruit and finishes dry. Moreover, the good news is that there are 450 cases of it. All of this comes from both the James Berry and Denner Vineyards."
