"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.
Tart cherry, bordering on bitter. Kind of dull and uninteresting.
External Reviews for Cartlidge & Browne Pinot Noir North Coast
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 1ndash;2 years of life.
Vigorous and full-flavored this berry driven Pinot blends aromas of cherry cobbler with spice cake and toffee. A great companion to meals with fall flavors like roast brussels sprouts with bacon or dare we say, turkey?
This is a smooth, silky Pinot Noir with flavors of plum, berry, Asian spice and anise. This pairs well with grilled lamb or salmon.
