Cline Cellars Red Rhone Blend California Cashmere 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Cashmere is a very flavorful, smooth wine offering bright cherry, raspberry, chocolate and toast with hints of cracked black pepper and plum. One of the most versatile reds, try Cashmere as an accompaniment to grilled salmon, pork roast or duck. 28% Mourvedre, 25% Syrah, 23% Grenache, 22% Petit Sirah

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?

Pure and supple, this is easy to enjoy for its caressing tannins and savory plum and wild berry flavors. Good length. Mourvèdre, Syrah, Grenache and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2018.

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.

A stunning value, the 2011 Cashmere is a 47,000-case blend of 35% Mourvedre, 24% Syrah, 23% Grenache and 18% Petite Sirah aged six months in oak. This knock-out red is a California version of an exuberant Cotes du Rhone with lots of pepper, black currant, raspberry, forest floor and underbrush characteristics as well as rich, medium-bodied, juicy, succulent flavors with plenty of texture and plushness. Enjoy it over the next several years.
