Next, SOHO will pour a 2011 Conde de San Cristóbal Ribera el Duero. Of the wine, the winemaker says, “Elegant wine power in all phases of a well-covered and clean cherry red. The aroma is deep and complex, with lots of fresh, ripe, intense fruit, spice and mineral notes. The palate retains its fruit, shows broad, fresh, powerful, rich and very tasty.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2013 Pasanau Ceps Nous Priorat. Wine Spectator Insider says of the wine, “Savory and spicy notes of licorice, cigar box and cardamom frame a deep core of plum and kirsch in this expressive red. Firm tannins and balsamic acidity impart a solid structure.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2012 Altos Ibericos Crianza. From the region of Rioja this Tempranillo is described by the winemaker: “Opaque cherry red color. Floral and fruit aromas of Damscus rose, strawberry and raspberry, with spicy and smoky notes imparted by oak aging. Velvety, smooth, with fine, juicy tannins.”

First, SOHO will pour a 2014 Diora La Petite Grace Pinot Noir from Monterey. The winemaker offers the following tasting notes, “Garnet in the glass, aromas of black cherries and brambly blackberry mingle with nuances of brown sugar and mocha. Soft and silky, yet powerful and full-bodied, the palate unfolds with rich layers of ripe plumbs, dark chocolate, barrel spice and coffee bean. A long, lingering finish imbues a lasting impression of dark, concentrated flavors.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2012 Thomas Fogarty Cabernet Franc from the Santa Cruz mountains. The winemaker says, “We think very highly of the Santa Cruz Cabernet Franc. The unique flavor profile and expressive nature of these wines speak so clearly to their mountain origin. We find these wines loaded with dark  red fruit, spice and distinctive dried herb notes that are the result of low yielding vines grown in poor mountain soils.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2013 Justin Cabernet Sauvignon. The winemaker notes, “Classic cabernet flavors with moderate plus blackcurrant, cherry fruit and baking spice flavors on the entry. Sweet tobacco and savory herbal notes arrive on the mid-palate, along with beautifully balanced tannins that provide a structure that supports the wine through its perfectly balanced, clean fnish.”

Santa Rita Hills

First, SOHO will pour a 2013 Santa Barbara Winery Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir from the Santa Ynez Valley. KensWineGuide.com offers the following review: “This ruby colored Pinot Noir from the Santa Rita Hills opens with a plum and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium-bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is black cherry with notes of oak. I also detected hints of strawberry licorice, earth, black pepper and espresso. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2013 Stolpman Vineyards La Cuadrilla ‘The Crew.’ The winemaker offers the following notes: “This year’s blend bursts with deep, dark Syrah aroma lifted with pure red berry Grenache notes. The touch of Sangiovese and Petite Sirah both lend a solid tannic backbone. In the mouth, the wine gains complexity from the youthful primary fruit flavors -baking spice and leather.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2013 Eberle Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles. The wine is described, “The palate is full of rich dark fruit flavors of cassis, black cherry and cola with herbaceous notes and a long finish.”
