    Winemaker's Notes:

    Cashmere is one of the most precious gifts of nature. It evokes quality, luxuriousness, and something that is a labor of love to produce. Our Cashmere is a silky and wonderful blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache, and Syrah. It 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 we produce, try Cashmere as an accompaniment to grilled salmon, pork roast or duck.

    Cline Cellars proudly supports Living Beyond Breast Cancer and over the years has contributed more than $200,000 to breast cancer foundations.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lush but oh-so-lovely, this sleek contender (a GSM blend) speaks a spiced cherry tongue that tickles the upper palate. Pretty and perfectly food-friendly.

    Tasting Panel

    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.

    Robert S. (6/26/2013)
    Pleasantly earthy, fruity aromas without any harsh elements. Primarily red fruit flavors (bing cherry, thimbleberry, raspberry) with a distinct earthy component, again surprisingly pleasant given Mourvedre’s reputation for somewhat rough and rustic farmyard characteristics. Some black fruit components in the background behind the earthy character, but red fruits are dominant. Second night similar to the first, with a little more black fruit shows in the initial flavors than was the case for the first night. Red fruits again dominate after a little airing in the glass. Third night rather similar to the second, with black fruits beginning to challenge the red fruits in the flavors, and with tannins beginning to emerge a little more in the flavors and finish. After some airing in the glass, the red fruits again assert themselves in the flavors Medium/full bodied, smooth, with mild tannins. A wine that grows on you, and one of the few wines with a noticeable earthy component that I actually like. A versatile food wine. At its best on the first and second nights, but still holding up quite well on the third night after a bit of airing in the glass.

    Fruity and concentrated with a nice mouth-feel. A good go-to red for entertaining guests or sipping while watching a movie.

    Average for a wine in the $10 to $11 range. Not a value at $15. Very weak and little aroma.

    This wine was odd. I've had other vintages of this wine and I've enjoyed this, but this particular vintage (2011) seemed off. It wasn't flawed but it seemed as if sugar had been added or something had been altered. Not flawed, but also not, subjectively that tasty.

    Disappointing. I loved the well-balanced 2010, but this was way too jammy for my taste. If you like fruit-forward wine, you will probably enjoy this.
