In honor of Santa Barbara’s Old Spanish Days, we’re celebrating with 2014 Carr Pinot Noir, Turner Vineyard and carnitas tacos. The spicy hints from this Pinot Noir compliment this authentic taco recipe. ¡Viva la fiesta!
Clams usually pair best with white wines, however the crispy prosciutto and creamy white basil sauce on this pasta adds enough “umph” to the otherwise dainty clam flavors, that it makes a great match for our delicate 2014 Hillside Whole Cluster Pinot Noir. This wine is gently hand rolled on whole Pinot Noir clusters during the fermentation process, creating a gorgeous and easy-drinking wine.
This delightful, medium bodied 2014 Carr Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir pairs best with relaxation and a no-fuss meal. Whether you’re camping, tailgating, or simply barbecuing in the backyard, get the grill going to make these easy, light burgers while enjoying a glass of this members-only Pinot Noir.
Although our Paella and Pinot event has come and gone, we still haven’t had enough! Chef Scott Wallace created three incredible paella recipes for the event to pair with our pre-release 2015 Pinot Noirs, so we’ve followed in his footsteps to give your an at-home recipe to pair with our 2014 Carr Pinot Noir from the Yard Vineyard. This is a vegetarian recipe, but you can add apple chicken sausages or shrimp for some extra flavor.
With fruit from Turner Vineyard, Yard Vineyard, and Lindsay’s Vineyard, the 2007 Carr Three Vineyard’s Pinot Noir draws a special appeal. Flavors of spice, lush black cherries and hints of cola are brought to life in this 93 point library selection. The light fruity flavors of the Pinot Noir cut through the gentle layers of cream and cheese, and our hearts. Enjoy!
Pinot Noir is one of the easiest wines to drink with food. It goes great with vegetarian dishes, fish, red meat, white meat, ethnic food, cheeseburgers…. That is also what makes it so difficult for me to always pick the perfect recipe! This one, however, was a no brainer. Our 2014 Carr Pinot Noir 114 from the Yard Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills is a medium bodied, single clone Pinot Noir. It is fruity, yet earthy with subtle spice. This recipe has all the same depth and flavor characteristics to stand up to this wine. Another Carr recipe to try with your Carr wines.
