2015 Cline Cellars Cashmere Red Blend

“A rich and layered weeknight red.”

2015 Cline Cellars Cashmere Red California USA:

This wine pours a medium ruby with purple hues in the glass. It has a youthful nose of medium intensity and layers of aromas such as fresh picked red and blue berries, violets, black pepper, savory herbs such as lavender and thyme, red licorice, lavender, and a slightly sweet note of candied cherries. The palate is dry and earthy, almost rustic with integrated yet youthful medium tannins and balanced medium+ acidity. It’s meaty, full bodied, and has a long tart fruit finish. This wine is more complex than its price would suggest. A perfect weeknight wine that over delivers.

This wine is crafted of 59% Mourvedre, 22% Syrah, and 19% Grenache from grapes mostly from Cline’s vineyards in Contra Costa County. The wine was aged for 6 months in French oak (28% new) with a dark toast.

Pair with grilled meats, pizza, burgers, or BBQ.

ABV 14.5%

SRP $15
