"Despite the enormous influence of California's wineries, too few specialize in premium wines at value prices. One that does is Cartlidge and Browne. Avoiding extra oak and other types of manipulation used by some vintners, Cartlidge & Browne produces fruity, pure, and vibrant wines that reflect varietals' personalities.
scents of bubble gum and butter has a buttery start and a tangy lemon finish
Totally and pleasantly surprised by this wine. Is it white Burgundy? No. Is is a nicely balanced, creamy, under $10 bottle of chardonnay with out aggressive oak? Yes. As such, it's a good thing. Pale straw in color. Aromas of butter, cream, and apples, all echoed in the flavors with a citrus-apple-cream finish.
Too much lush pineapple fruit and rich spicy oak for my taste.
