Since its first release in the spring of 1980, Cartlidge & Browne has won the hearts of consumers who appreciate premium quality wine at modest prices. Winemaker Marty Peterson comes from a family rich with vitcultural heritage. His great grandfather, Carl A. Peterson, built the family farm in Lodi in 1904 and it was here Marty learned how to grow quality wine grapes. After receiving a degree from California State University Fresno in oenology he began his career as an associate winemaker at Francis Ford Coppola Winery. A master blender, he sources fruit from high quality vineyards throughout the state, emphasizing accurate varietal expression, balance, low alcohol, food-friendliness, complexity and most of all value! “Despite the enormous influence of California’s wineries, too few specialize in premium wines at value prices. One that does is Cartlidge & Browne. Avoiding the extra oak and other types of manipulation used by some vintners, Cartlidge & Browne produces fruity, pure, and vibrant wines that reflect varietals’ personalities. Even better, it offers sensational quality at bargain basement prices. - Robert Parker
Technical notes
After fermentation in stainless steel tank the wine was aged in new French oak (45%).
