A rustic offering from the Santa Rosa area, the Line 39 attempts to combine the deeper, more earthier tones of classical cabernets with the bright and lasting appeal of more fruit forward cabernets. The nose is where the classical elements truly shine in the glass, with touches of soil, plum, and green bell pepper running deep within the bouquet. In contrast, the palate offers a great deal of bright red berries, primarily raspberry and dark cherry, that provide a lively and more stylistic appeal to bottle. With a long-lasting appeal and slightly savory elements on the finish, this cabernet is a solid, well-rounded choice for any occasion. Would I swim in it? I could envision a dinner or two wading about in this wondrous liquid when we require a little something bigger and brighter at the table during steak night.
