Cecchetti Wine Company Line 39 California Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, California 

My Rating 85 Points.   

Price $12. 


Dark ruby in color with a short brick rim.

Fruity nose of cherries, raspberries, plums, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, smoke, heavy bell pepper, green vegetables, herbs, earth, graphite and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with plums, black currants, raspberries, earth, green vegetables, beef jerky, cloves, spices, coffee and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and bitter herbs.

This California Cabernet is still young, but drinking nicely now with lots of earthy notes. Almost balanced, with mild complexity and a soft mouthfeel. Simple and too bitter on the ending for my taste. A good everyday red wine, though.

Better with food than just by itself. needs 6 months to a year in the bottle to mature. (Very earthy and green right now).

I paired it with a cheese plate and assorted dried meats.

Better after 90 minutes in a decanter.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
