Wines of the Month
While the rest of the world was in upheaval during the tumultuous days of the early 1970s, family and tradition were very much alive on a bucolic farm in Oakley, California, as Valeriano Jacuzzi (yes that Jacuzzi)- one of the original Italian immigrant brothers of spa fame – showed his grandson Fred Cline how to tease magic from the soil. Fred learned, among other things, how to turn grapes into wine ripe with character and intensity, with full and abundant heart.
Nancy Bunting, herself the product of pioneer family roots, met Fred when they were both students at UC Davis. They married and began a humble winery in Oakley with Fred’s small inheritance. Ignoring the hyped-up wine trends of the day, Fred and Nancy chose to restore acres of 100-year-old vines and produce Rhone-style varietals like Mourvedre, Carignane, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier. They also planted acres of what would become legendary Cline Cellars Zinfandel.
In 1991, Fred and Nancy moved the winery to a 350-acre ranch in the famed Carneros Valley in Sonoma County. There the Clines planted Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. They opened a tasting room in the 1853 farmhouse, and renovated the grounds to highlight the history and pastoral beauty of the property.
The Sonoma Coast Series showcases the soil and climate of the area with cooler temperatures and fog filled nights leading to wines of clean, crisp acidity. The Chardonnay exhibits tropical notes and the Pinot Noir is in the delicate style associated with the Sonoma region. The grapes take longer to ripen in the Sonoma Coast region but the wait is well worth the final product.
