Cartlidge and Browne Pinot Noir

Had the 2009 Cartlidge and and Browne Pinot Noir from Northern Coast California a couple nights ago and even though quaffable, it  came off more like a moderately jammy Sonoma Zin.  I can’t believe how thick some of these California Pinots are, especially ones from The Carneros area. Some have fruit so thick that you could cut it with a knife.   I  guess I am a purest, but when I think of great Pinot Noir, I think of lean and wonderful mouthfeel.
