"Bright but full-bodied, Oakley 82 Red combines jammy boysenberry with mild pepper flavors. Luscious fruit is complemented by smooth tannins that ensure the flavors will age well into the future."
56% Syrah ,15% Petite Sirah, 13% Barbera, 5% Cabernet Franc Balance Mixed Red
The Vineyards :
The bounties of two distinct vineyards combine in this vintage of Oakley 82. Cline’s Oakley vineyards run along the shores of the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers, where warm days are cooled by the winds off the water. The vines root deep in the sand-soil and produce robust, intense fruit. Cline’s coastal vineyards run along the Sonoma Coast, where foggy mornings and sunny afternoons bring out the bright fruit flavors and deep color in the fruit. This vintage of Oakley 82 is 46% Oakley, 54% Sonoma Coast, and 100% delicious.

"Cline’s Oakley is more than halfway made up of Syrah, with smaller smatterings of Petite Sirah, Barbera and Cabernet Franc. The tinkering in the cellar works, the wine refreshing in strawberry jam, soft and rich with an herbal presence and kiss of vanilla on the finish."
