Cline Cellars Red Rhone Blend California Cashmere 2011
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
OOOOOO so nice. Aptly named. I'll be drinking more of this wine.
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?
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.

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.

Pure and supple, this is easy to enjoy for its caressing tannins and savory plum and wild berry flavors. Good length. Mourvandegrave;dre, 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.
