Cartlidge and Browne Pinot Noir 2003 (PB)
This light red beauty comes out of the bottle with seductive aromas of fresh fruit and pipe tobacco aromas. In the mouth it has a lively tartness with a pleasant underlying tease of something elusive but wonderful. It finishes dry with some sexy undertones of that mysterious “something.” With a little air, this wine opens into a lovely and elegant wine with a subtle raisiny overtone that is just simply fresh and tantalizing. At $10.50 this is certainly a recommended wine and Gaiter and Brecher of the Wall Street Journal prove once again to be dead on with their recommendation as an inexpensive Pinot Noir "best value." Raise a glass tonight!
