Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.
Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.
Scramble the hills of superior flavor! (We're bad at metaphors.)
OK, dude, I admit I was pretty POed when I saw what you’d done with our canteens. Replacing all of our water with that 2010 Clif Climber Limited Release Red Blend? Total jerk move, I thought. Out on a hike, that water could make the difference between survival and, uh, un-survival or whatever. Believe me when I say, dude, that I was ready to throw you into a ravine for that little stunt.
But for some reason, I took a sip. And then another. And one more. By now I had calmed down. I could see – or, rather, taste – the beauty in what you’d done. This California red blend combines Merlot from Oak Knoll and Cab Sauv from Pope Valley, Howell Mountain, Rutherford and St. Helena. It opened with those aromas of fresh cranberry and hints of vanilla, and that palate revealed flavors of strawberry and pomegranate with underlying clove. By the time those subtle brown spices set in over the long finish, I was ready to forgive.
Then I noticed that it’s made by the same Clif people responsible for every climber’s favorite protein bars. At that point, dude, my hate turned to hugs.
Now, of course, wine and rock-climbing don’t mix. No problem, though: once we found what you’d put in our canteens, we never left base camp.
2010 Clif Climber Limited Release, Red Wine Blend 750ml 3-Pack
This wine opens with aromas of fresh cranberry and hints of vanilla. The palate reveals bright flavors of strawberry and pomegranate with underlying clove and other subtle brown spices. Medium to full-bodied with supple tannins and a long finish.
Vineyard: The grapes for the 2010 Climber Limited Release, red wine blend came from five vineyards located throughout the Napa Valley including our Howell Mountain Estate Vineyard, Clark Claudon in Pope Valley, Oak Knoll, Rutherford and Saint Helena. This marks the first wine we release using grapes from our Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyard. The 2010 vintage was a challenging one with difficulties of early rain, dry spells and then late rain. But creating a unique flavor profile.
Winemaking: Each vintage, the blend for the Climber Limited Release is slightly different, with its own unique story. This is our winemaker's favorite wine to make as he can take what varietals grew best and compose the best blend from a particular vintage. The 2010 blend is 63% Merlot from Oak Knoll and 37% Cabernet Sauvignon from Pope Valley, Howell Mountain, Rutherford and St. Helena. The wine was aged in 80% new and 20% second filled French oak that included a medium to heavy toast for 18 months.

St. Helena, CA
Kit inherited a passion for natural food from her mother and father who instilled in her the value of growing your own food and caring for the natural resources of the land. At Clif Family Farm, Kit has fun creating meals for family and friends from the organic fruits and vegetables that she grows on the Farm. Kit's interest in wine began when she worked at a popular artisan pasta, wine and cheese shop in San Francisco and expanded when she and Gary purchased a home and farm in the Napa Valley. Kit has a passion for animals and raises chickens and turkeys on the farm. Kit plays a very active role in her local and global community. As a St. Helena High School parent, she is very active in fundraising activities for the local community. As President of Clif Bar Family Foundation, she is responsible for the fiscal oversight of the foundation and its programs.
Gary has been cooking and baking since high school under the watchful eyes of his mother and grandmother. He began Kali's Sweets and Savories (named after his grandmother) in 1986 as a small bakery making calzones and gourmet cookies. Kali's went on to become Clif Bar & Company, the leading maker of organic energy food and drinks. Gary's love of food and wine began with his cycling trips through Europe. A day of cycling would inevitably end with a long meal and a great bottle of wine. The European's connection with their food was an inspiration for what would later become Clif Family Winery & Farm. Whether it's cycling in the French & Italian Alps or a mountain bike ride on his Napa Valley property, good food and wine are always part of the adventure. When he's not busy running his two companies, Gary can be found at home, cooking eclectic dishes for his family or playing jazz trumpet.
