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!

This weekend is Cinco de Mayo and it looks like the weather will be nice and warm for us wine-os! This calls for celebration with 2016 Carr Sauvignon Blanc. With fruit from two vineyards in Santa Ynez, this wine is full of crisp flavors of lime zest and green apple blossom that ease into a bright mid-palate of lemon and soft florals. It gracefully finishes with notes of light, yellow grass and fresh pears. At $22 per bottle, it is perfect for drinking on the patio or in the sunshine. We have also paired it with three recipes – that aren’t tacos! -for your Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Enjoy!
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!
