" The downturn of our economy has had at least one positive effect with respect to the wine industry; it has caused many wineries to include among their offerings a value-priced, easy-drinking option that is pleasant to consume with simple, everyday foods and can be bought, pain-free, by the case. Always a trend-setter, Cline has been making their low-price Oakley wines for years. This is the California version of a Côtes du Rhone. Grapes are destemmed entirely to minimize tannins, and a third of the berries are left to ferment whole to impart an easy gulpability. Made from Mourvèdre and Carignane with small amounts of Syrah, Alicante Bouschet and Cinsaut, the 2001 Oakley Vin Rouge is an ideal house red that you don't have to fret over."
