Cline Cellars California Cashmere Exquisite Red Blend 2013

image

My Rating 82 Points. 
Price $15.

Light Ruby in color with a light red rim.

On the nose, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, oak, vanilla, earth, forest floor, chocolates, leather and black pepper.

Medium-bodied with high acidity and nice long legs.

Fruity and tart on the palate with blueberries, plums, cherries, red currants, earth, graphite, mint, espresso, dark chocolate, dirt, spices and black pepper.

Long finish with soft tannins and peppercorn.

This is a very unique GSM blend of 53% Mourvedre, 25% Syrah and 22% Grenache, where in this case, Mourvedre is the star of the show.
A little tart for my taste, but very interesting. Gentle with a Light mouth feel.

Good food wine, but not so much by itself. I paired it with cheeses and Tapas.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
