Avoiding extra oak and other types of manipulation used by some vintners, Cartlidge & Browne produces fruity, pure, and vibrant wines that reflect varietals' personalities.

This is a wonderful entry level pinot noir. Very mild. Dark and earthy notes on the nose. Plum and cherry on the palate. This wine has a very clean smooth finish of medium length. I was very pleasantly surprised.

A darn good Pinot Noir for the price. We typically pay twice as much for a pinot and get half the enjoyment that we got with Cartledge and Browne. Defintely a staple in the wine rack.

Drank this last night with a simple salad of grilled chicken and goat cheese. Wow... pretty amazing pinot for the price. Good earthy backbone, fruit is mellow and not over-ripe, good oak nose / flavor, silky finish and a bit of licorice/anise spice on the nose. Highly recommend as an entry-level pinot noir! 2 wino thumbs up!!

30 mins after opening the wine was pleasantly balanced with mild earth ad spice and pleasant plum and berry fruit. The next day after leaving half the bottle re-corked (but not vacuum aspirated or nitrogenated) the earthy quality was very developed, almost outshining the now less bright but wonderfully rich fruit. At this price it's a real score, especially after a decent aeration (I would give it at least 30-45 mins of air before drinking). Anise and other spice notes were lovely with a stir fry of spinach and Florence fennel (finnocchio) sautueed with garlic and a bit of soy sauce.

The medium garnet-hued 2008 Pinot Noir offers smoky herb, red currant, and pomegranate notes in an evolved style. It represents a decent value. These noteworthy values are consistently well-made wines meant for uncritical drinking during their first 1andndash;2 years of life.

This bright garnet Pinot Noir offers a gentle aroma of cinnamon and thyme. The rich body sends waves of soft cherry fruit over the palate. It's a lovely accompaniment to salmon dishes.

Medium-full garnet in color, the wine leaps from the glass with loads of baked cherry/berry fruit character, along with anise, spice cake, and the "beety" notes so appreciated in Pinot Noir. Showing lots of vigor and sweet, juicy fruit on the palate, the wine's muscle is matched by a supple texture and velvety tannins that give it great accessibility. Enjoy it with grilled meats and poultry, salmon and light pastas.

Roasted plums, black cherry, plump figs and an oak granted earthy spice are the main flavors that boast their presence in this medium bodied red. This wine is rich and displays ripe flavors of cherry liqueur and black fruits all while maintaining great balance and solid structure. Enjoy with roast duck or your favorite braised pork dish.
