Cecchetti Wine Company Line 39 Central Coast Cabernet Franc 2012, California 

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price $14. 
Dark ruby in color with a wide, light purple /red rim.

Nice fruity nose, but light, with blueberries, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth and peppercorn.

Medium-bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cranberries, earth, wood, forest floor, smoke, green pepper, peppercorn, cloves and spices.

Medium finish with soft tannins, black pepper and tart cherries.

A soft Cabernet Franc from California. Drinkable, but not special. Unbalanced, with some complexity. Probably past its peak by now. I had this vintage every year for the last 3 years, and last year was the best one.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
