Try this Mediterranean inspired dish with our 2015 Carr Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir. The mildly sweet fruit flavors of the Pinot Noir compliment the lemony chicken, while the radish and root spice finish of the wine compliments the grassy and bright flavor of the olives.
Even though Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and predicted 6 more weeks of winter, we are getting ready for the warmer weather that is right around the corner. Backyard cookouts and dining outdoors calls for new and exciting recipes, like lentil tacos, which pair famously with the 2015 Pinot Noir from the Yard Vineyard. The wine tastes like fresh raspberry with hints of light strawberry and candied cherries, finishing with full dark plum and subtle tannins. The full flavors of the lentils, paired with the bright fruit flavors of the pico create a great sidekick for this wine.
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.
Flatbreads are some of the most fun recipes to experiment with, especially since it is hard to get it “wrong.” This fruity and savory flatbread makes a great partner to our 2014 Carr Pinot Noir, Yard Vineyard. The bright berry flavors and earthy undertones of the Pinot match well with the apples, raspberry, and cheese flavors in this recipe.
Since the leaves don’t change here in Santa Barbara, we are getting our fall color fix from this vibrant pasta dish. Bursting with both color and flavor, it needs an equally exciting wine.
