Cline sell a line of wines called ancient vines. They are all very interesting and worth a try. Also their Pinot Gris, and Viognier are both good.

never had their Pinot Gris. I've had their "cashmere".
I like some of the viognier I've tried, but I can't pronounce it.

Vee-own-yay. Tried the Cashmere in the past, good wine, but not a blend to my liking. Try the Pinot Gris with figs or baked apples drizzled with honey. The Viognier is great with peaches or apricots.

Low oak, just a hint of vannila on the finish, I think the alcohol was 12.5.

That was a very enjoyable Cab Franc. Velvety tannins and more opulent than almost all wines I have tried from that appellation. Thanks again.

Serra Vineyards syrah 2010.

This is our favorite vinyard, and they don't distribute at all...found a store out their way (but not as far) that had this WAY cheaper than the vinyard and covered in dust and older than what's available at the vinyard. They're pretty much a member supported place.


Very fruity black cherry and a boozy finish (14.5%) and a very pleasant taste as that boozyness subsides.
