CARTLIDGE AND BROWNE, PINOT NOIR, NORTH COAST, CALIFORNIA, USA, 2018

£16.99

In 1980, the same year Ronald Reagan came to power and JR was shot in 'Dallas', with no money to buy vineyards and seeing no reason to, Tony Cartlidge started his winery in an undistinguished Napa Valley garage.

Possibly the original Californian 'garagiste' he set out to source the best possible grapes to handcraft his wines in this unassuming home. Nearly 40 years later, still sourcing from vineyards as wide ranging as Sonoma to the Sierra foothills, continuing to produce high quality wines, Cartlidge & Browne has become a byword for varietally pure Californian wines, whilst sticking to their garagiste roots of taking a different path.

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.
