    Winemaker Notes

    The original cult wine! The 2002 Small Berry Mourvèdre shows intense jammy flavors with overtones of tobacco, plum and eucalyptus-mint. With plenty of flesh and a firm balanced structure of acid and fine-grained tannins, this wine is excellent now and will age well over the next five to seven years.

    Vineyards
    The fruit for Small Berry Mourvèdre comes from a small block of our vineyard with low yields that consistently produces one of our most complex and concentrated Mourvèdres. The head-pruned vines are at least 100 years old and are planted on their original rootstock, making this one of California's most historic vineyards. This wine exemplifies the unique character of the varietal while showcasing the elegant flavors that are contributed by the phylloxera resistant sandy soils described as our singular Oakley terroir. The proximity of this vineyard to Eucalyptus trees also contributes to the signature of this wine. Cline Cellars dry farms these ancient, head-pruned vines, continuing a practice employed by the Italian and Portuguese immigrants who planted this vineyard well before the turn of the last century.

    Cline Winery Video

    Cline Family Cellars is a family-owned and operated winery founded by Fred and Nancy Cline in 1982 in Oakley, CA. The winery facilities were relocated in 1991 to the Sonoma Valley, on a 350-acre estate in the Carneros district. The Cline winery and vineyards are built on a foundation of deeply rooted respect for the land and love of winemaking. Recognized for its rich portfolio of wines, Cline is one of the pioneers of California’s Rhone Rangers movement, and the largest holder of 100+ year-old-vine vineyards in California.

    A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

    The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king.

    Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.

    The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

    The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.
