Cline Cellars Cashmere 2015

Member Review by RandyFisher:

The additional mourvedre (53%) shows through in this vintage with a good tannic bite. My preference would be for something more in the 20% range.

Saved a bottle of this for a few years. Have found it is different than the usual Cline Cashmere. A bit softer and less mourvedre. At five years the wine has turned a bit brickish at the edges and has lost some of its fruitiness and some pleasent acidity has taken it place. It has soft tannins on the finish but with noticable drying. Wish this blend were more common.

My rating 86: Strange mixture with too much sweet taste in it. Nose is flowery. It is not a Rhone wine. Is that made for women who don't like firmer wines?

Cashmere is a very flavorful, smooth wine offering big cherry, raspberry and chocolate notes with hints of cracked black pepper and plum. ~ The Winery ~

Truly enjoyable wine with moderately complex berry and stone fruit flavors-forward on the upper palate, with enjoyable accents of milky chocolate and exotic aromatic spices backed by soft tannins that benefitted by 2 hours relaxed breathing time. Overall, a real treat for the price, that lives up to it's "silky" name.

A wine I have liked a lot in the past is their Rhone Ranger blend of Mourvedre, Syrah, Grenache and Petite Sirah, the 2011 Cashmere. This is not up to the level of several previous examples, but it is medium-bodied and attractive, with pepper, raspberry and a hint of herbaceously tinged cherry fruit. Drink it over the next year.
