Four Play at Carhartt Vineyard

Published December 2, 2012

Glad that got your attention! Relieved to know spelling doesn’t count. Actually, Four Play is the name of blend you can get at the Carhartt Vineyard tasting room in Los Olivos, which should be at the top of your list. Not because of the fun play on words, but because Mike and Brooke always make it entertaining, delicious, and even cozy.

They start your tasting with crisp refreshing Grenache Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc (although I think we got the last), a legendary Pinot Noir, and, if you are lucky, one of the best Sangioveses in the state. Finally, the dark beauty is a delicious deep rich mix of four Bordeaux varietals. Like they like to say “Four Play:  some people start with it; we end with it.” Never leave without some.
