2018 Cartlidge & Browne Pinot Noir, North Coast, California

Tasting Notes

This ruby-purple Pinot is no pushover. Bold cherries, raspberries and blackberries purr with vanilla meringue and toasty oak notes. Warming on the tongue, baking spice and stone-like minerality round into a juicy, firm finish.

Vineyard Information

The first release from Tony Cartlidge and Glenn Browne in 1981 sold out in just three weeks. After teaming up with winemaker Paul Moser the following year, they have continued to go from strength to strength. Now operating out of a winery just north of St. Helena, Cartidge and Browne are known for high quality, well priced wines and while definitely Californian in fruit, there is a distinct European styling to the wines.
