California's Cline Cellars was producing delicious red and white wines from Rhône varieties such as Syrah, Mourvèdre and Zinfandel long before it became fashionable. Proprietor Fred Cline used the fruit from old vineyards scattered throughout Contra Costa County to craft wines with power and richness while everyone else was concentrating on Cabernet. Initially created for the Hospice du Rhone event held in Paso Robles each year, the Cashmere combines Grenache and Mourvèdre from the ancient Oakley vineyard with Syrah from cool-climate Sonoma Coast vineyards. A stunning USQ exclusive, this California-Châteauneuf is the best Rhône-Ranger bargain you're likely to taste. We like pairing its lush cherry and spicy tropical chocolate aromas and flavors with teriyaki-basted meats and skin-on salmon. Don't forget thyme-flavored braises either!
