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.

A zoodle? What is a zoodle? A zoodle is simply a noodle made from zucchini, and it is a fantastic substitute for real noodles. It tastes great and it’s perfect for adding more vegetables to your diet. Enjoy this dish with a glass or two of 2016 Carr Sauvignon Blanc to get your daily serving of fruit – that counts, right?
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!
