The 2016 Carr Pinot Noir from the Yard Vineyard is one of our favorite red wines this season. It has a lovely, bright acidity and a fruity, earthy flavor that is perfect for a warm summer evening. We have paired up with local Private Chef Robin Goldstein to bring you this delicious tomato pie from her cookbook, Simply Delicious Wine Country Recipes. Like what you see? You can pick up a copy at either Carr location. Cheers!
Cab Franc is back!! And the 2016 vintage has got it going on – by “it,” we mean serious flavor! The 2016 Carr Cabernet Franc encompasses an overall sense of natural flavor components like roasted bell pepper with mellow notes of violet and herbs. We have paired up with local Private Chef Robin Goldstein to bring you this incredible lamb shank recipe from her cookbook, Simply Delicious Wine Country Recipes. Like what you see? You can pick up a copy at either Carr location. Cheers!
This 2016 Whole Cluster Pinot Noir yields a beautiful deep, rich color, with inviting aromas of ripe cherries and pink roses. Initial flavors of pomegranate blend with a velvety mouth-feel on this medium bodied wine, rolling into a silky and delicate finish of dark chocolate raspberries. We recommend starting an evening off with this wine, which is why we’ve paired it this baked brie hors d’oeuvre!
The 2016 Carr Pinot Noir, Pommard is a single-clone Pinot Noir from the Yard Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills. With flavors of vanilla cola, ripe cranberry, and black pepper this is an truly unique and delicious Pinot Noir. With a long lasting finish that just won’t quit, this wine deserves to be paired with foods that has flavors that are just as bold to compliment it. Try it with these Greek salad-style flatbreads for a fun and tasty experience!
Pork belly is one of my favorite cuts of meat these days. While some people consider pork belly nothing more than a fancy version of bacon, it really is so much more than that. In fact, it is considered a delicacy in many parts of the world! This version of pork belly is crispy on the outside, yet tender on the inside. It is a perfect match for our 2016 Carr Santa Barbara County Syrah, that has just as much style as this trendy piece of meat. Enjoy!
Bright fruit and gentle earth notes make this 2016 Carr Pinot Noir from the Yard Vineyard a perfect sipping Pinot. While it is an excellent stand-alone wine, it is always fun to jazz up a great wine with a fancy (yet easy!) meal. Try this Pinot with this light and flavorful pasta dish for a lovely spring evening!
