"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.
External Reviews for Cartlidge & Browne Merlot North Coast
A full, deep garnet in color, the Cartlidge and Browne Merlot offers lush, ripe aromas of plum and black cherry, along with wonderful suggestions of spice cake, cocoa, and fine toasty oak. On the palate, it is generous and soft, with lots of black fruit flavors, mocha and anise, along with a touch of rose potpourri.
