Frank Pagliaro has been a Wilmington wine merchant since 1986 – Frank’s Union Wine Mart. He is the Team Host & Chief Wino of the FranksWine.com Marathon Team which gets fellow winos and runners together to train for a yearly Fall Marathon while raising money for children’s charities.

With more than 20 years’ experience growing grapes, Roy Cecchetti knows what it takes to successfully bring to market “everyday wines for serious wine collectors.” When launching Cecchetti Wine Company, Roy enlisted Bob Broman to manage winemaking duties for him. This experience allowed Bob to travel across California’s vast wine regions nurturing grower relationships to ensure quality fruit sources.

 

Bob’s commitment to detail creates the backbone for blending stylistic wines that are approachable, consistent, a good value, and can be enjoyed any day of the week. Together Roy and Bob strive to show wine consumers that good wine does not always come with a hefty price tag. I like the way these guys think!

 

Line 39 is produced in what Bob refers to as the The New Frontier – Lake County. This region’s climate and soil composition are well-suited for producing wines that are versatile, sophisticated, and pair with a variety of food, especially the Petite Sirah and Sauvignon Blanc bottlings. With this confidence in the region, it should be no surprise that the brand name refers to latitude 39 , where many of the great wine growing regions of the world are found.

 

So, where the hell is Lake County?!?

 

This video shows you the beauty of Lake County, and speaks to the unique aspects of wine grapes grown in the region.

 

The 2009 Petite Sirah offers aromas of red and black fruits, with a hint of oak. A full-bodied wine that is both complex and elegant, this wine boasts rich flavors of dark fruits, cherries and a long finish that we believe will help put Lake County on the map. This Petite Sirah calls out for big juicy steak. 3,370 cases produced.

 

Roy’s 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits rich fruit flavors of currant and blackberry with hints of pepper on the palate. The wine finishes with subtle tannins that don’t overpower this easy-to-drink Cabernet Sauvignon. 2,150 cases produced.

 

Varietally accurate, this 2009 Sauvignon Blanc opens with vibrant aromas of grapefruit and lemon citrus, with subtle grassy characters. On the palate, this wine does not disappoint with refreshing flavors of grapefruit, lime and lemon, balanced by bright, crisp acidity on the finish. This easy sipping wine makes a perfect aperitif. 2,000 cases produced.
