Cecchetti Wine Company was launched by wine industry veteran Roy Cecchetti and his wife Rachael in 2007. The company strives to produce consistent and approachable wines of excellent value from California, especially the emerging region of Lake County, AVA. With more than 20 years experience growing wine brands, including Pepperwood Grove, Roy Cecchetti knows what it takes to successfully bring to market new and innovative brands. When launching Cecchetti Wine Company, Roy enlisted Bob Broman, who managed winemaking duties for him at Pepperwood Grove. 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. Cecchetti Wine Company offers two brands: Line 39 and Redtree. Read less

Nose of spicy cherry and some raspberry. Bright, zesty red fruit and fine tannins. Some nice oak influence rounds it out and it has a toasty finish. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 5/15/10

Bushels of cherries on the nose, with just a slight hint of PN funk. The palate is somewhat jammy a la cherry pie filling (without the sweetness) with just a hint of spice and just enough tannins to make you notice them. The WS 88 points seems a bit high, but hard to pass up for $7.

This was on sale for $4.97 at a well-known Minneapolis wine shop. That is a fair price for it sine there are better pinot noir's out there for $8 or $9. Red Tree Pinot Noir is non-offensive, light bodied, and short on flavor. It is, however, easy to drink and fuity. Strawberies and Michigan cherries come to mind. Not much depth of flavor or layers and finishes light and clean

A stunning value with strawberry and red cherry fruit finishing with plush tannins. Enough varietal character to surprise even your wine geek friends.

The color is vibrant, clear and inviting, and the initial scent is mildly aromatic. The wine has a smooth, full fruity flavor, very nicely balanced, with a smooth aftertaste. The structure of the wine is not complex but its balance makes for a very nice pinot that held up well to the dishes it was paired with.

I love this wine. #1 for a bargin pinot noir is is really good. It is very fruity and easy to drink. It is sweet and goes well with a casual dinner, pizza even. :) I recommend it for anyone looking for a good wine at a bargin price.

    From Wine Spectator: "Offers baked cherry pie, with rhubarb and blueberry, showing a wonderful fruit profile that's spicy, elegant and easy to drink. Great balance. Drink now." (Tasting Highlights, May 4, 2009) Also from James Laube of

    Pinot Noir 2008 - Redtree: Pinot Noir 2008 - Rotwein von Cecchetti Wines Der Redtree Pinot Noir komplettiert jedes Gericht, kann aber auch wegen seiner frischen, fruchtigen, direkten Art als Aperitif genossen werden. Sein Körper ist der Wein eher zierlich und leicht, er präsentiert seine feinen Aromen aber markant. Wir finden frische, reife Früchte und saftige Erdbeeren zusammen mit feinsten Eichenakzenten. Den Gaumen verwöhnen vollreife Kirschen und sanfte Tannine machen den Genuss perfekt.Weingut: Cecchetti WinesLand: USARegion: KalifornienRebsorte: Pinot NoirAlkoholgehalt: 12,5 Vol. %Säuregehalt: 6,1 g/lRestsüße: trockenInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°CAuszeichnungen des Redtree Pinot Noir 2008:88 Points - Wine Spectator, April 2009 Rotwein > USA > Kalifornien
