Natalie's Score: 93/100

Lovely, supple and seductive with full-bodied weight that's not heavy. Gorgeous aromas of black cherry, dark plum and anise. This wine is a blend of Mourvèdre, Syrah and Grenache grapes. About 25% of this wine was matured for 9 months in oak. Concentrated and rich with great food compatibility for dishes like grilled pork and t-bone steak.

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Just as the name suggests, Cashmere by Cline is soft, silky and delicious. A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre with raspberry, pepper, chocolate and toast. Extremely food friendly, it will go with so many of your favorite meals.
Vera rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Ruby color and a lovely aroma of red berries, currant and dark cherries. A bit more acidic than I remember. I will get more balanced and rich with more time in the bottle. Each of the varietal brings its own potential to the party. Mourvèdre and Grenache gives it a lot of fruit expression, cherry and raspberry, when tannic Syrah brings the depth, hint of chocolate and body. Together with a necessary acidity it makes a perfect concert of flavors. Very well crafted wine that shouldn’t be missed.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
