Wine Appearance

The flavors of the 2009 Cline Cashmere are primarily cherry, red berries, and tart red fruits. This is a full-bodied dry red wine blend with soft tannins, marked acidity, and an extended length. It would probably work with most gilled red meats and certain types of fish, like salmon. On the whole, though, we were disappointed with the 2009 Cline Cashmere. We wanted and expected to enjoy it, but it just didn't do anything for us.

Food Pairing

Pairing Cline Cashmere 2009 with Cheeses

  • Aged Gouda: When paired with aged Gouda, the flavor of the 2009 Cline Cashmere becomes a bit more like blackberries.
  • Aged Parmesan: This is a fair pairing, with the Cline Cashmere becoming a bit sweeter when paired with parmesan.
  • Blue Cheese: When paired with blue cheese, the 2009 Cline Cashmere becomes a bit fruitier.

Pairing Cline Cashmere 2009 with Main Dishes

  • Steak: The 2009 Cline Cashmere is OK when paired with steak — it's not bad, but it's nothing special either.
  • Mushrooms Stuffed with Sausage: The Cline Cashmere becomes a bit more aromatic when pared with the stuffed mushrooms, though it's not clear if the primary cause of this is the mushrooms, the sausage, or the combination of the two. This was probably the best and most interesting pairing of everything we tried.

The Cline Cashmere would probably work with most gilled red meats and certain types of fish, like salmon. You could also try it with tomato sauce dishes like lasagne.

Bottom Line
On the whole, we were disappointed with the 2009 Cline Cashmere. We wanted and expected to enjoy it, but it just didn't do anything for us. It's not bad wine, but it's also not a wine that stands out much at all or draws us into wanting to drink it again, either on its own or with any particular dishes.

Cline Cashmere

The Cline Cashmere isn't a bad wine, but it isn't all that great either. It didn't do much for most of the food we tried it with and it wasn't very notable on its own, either. I've really enjoyed other wines from Cline, but I'll pass on this one.
