2014 Carr Pinot Noir
Santa Barbara County
Fruit from two vineyards nested in the rolling slopes of the Sta. Rita Hills make up this delightful, medium bodied Pinot Noir. This wine exudes aromas of tart boysenberries, black raspberries, and red fruits while still expressing small traces of woody earth on the nose as a result of its time in delicate French oak barrels. Ripe raspberries add a lusciously balanced acidity to the mellow, tannic finish of vanilla and subtle spices. Pair with Oven-Roasted Kumquat Chicken.
