beef-1In our quest to bring you unique wines and creative cuisine, the next stop on our journey this month is to pair different beautiful red wines with beef dishes! Take a look at what we’re up to, and make some time to come see us this week!

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, October 10th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through October 16th.

First, SOHO will pour a L’Arco Rosso del Veronese 2015 from Veneto, Italy. The winemaker offers,

“Sangiovese fattens up the wine and makes it both interesting and age worthy. The grape amps up the blend’s flavor profile and brings the addition of dark cherries and a teasing hint of lavender. The finish outperforms for a medium-bodied wine, hanging on amid gripping tannins. Bold fruit, a long finish, Rosso del Veronese is a seductive bottle among Fedrigo’s range.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Leviathan Red Blend 2016 from California. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Lush yet powerful with blackberry, currant, dark chocolate and savory herbs with a dense, velvety finish on the palette.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Beringer Knight’s Valley Cabernet 2015 from Knight’s Valley. Notes on the wine,

“Beringer’s 2015 Cabernet (Knights Valley),one of the estate’s flagships, is deep, plush and enveloping. In 2015, the Knights Valley Cabernet is quite fruity, while the more mineral and savory notes that are so typical of this appellation aren’t really present. It will be interesting to see if the 2015 develops more complexity over time. Black cherry, mocha, lavender and sweet spice build nicely as the wine opens up in the glass.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!

Experience How Different Wines Can Be Paired With Shrimp At SOHO!

lsEvery once in a while, we like to mix things up a bit, and take a few risks when it comes to Flight Night.  The common misconception with food and wine is that when you’re having seafood, you must have white wine, and when you’re having meat, then red wine, etc.

Two things that we love about our restaurant is that we have Joey Zelinka’s amazingly creative cuisine, and our Sommelier Jeff Gelfond’s brilliant affinity for wines, so we love to match the two up to surprise our guests with pairings.  In this case for October, we are going to blow your mind (so to speak) with different wines paired with a particular type of food, to illustrate this new age of food and wine pairings.  This week, we debut Wines Paired with Shrimp!

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, October 3rd, and the wines and their tapas will be available through October 9th.

First, SOHO will pour a Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc 2017 from Rutherford, Napa Valley. The winemaker offers,

“The beauty of the Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc over the last 38 years has been its ability to marry the classical minerality and racy acidity of a Loire Valley Sancerre with the bright, sunny aromatics that scream Napa Valley. The combination makes a unique wine that deeply satisfies.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Chateau De Saint Cosme “Les Deux Albions Blanc” 2017 from Rhone Valley, France. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Les Deux Albions Blanc shows the salty minerality typical of limestone terroir with notes of dried apricots and white flowers. The plantings near Violès include Bourboulenc, Marsanne, Viognier, Picpoul, Clairette, and Ugni Blanc, and all varieties will be included in future bottlings.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Decero Malbec 2015 from Mendoza, Argentina. Notes on the wine,

“Continuing the hallmark style of Malbec from Remolinos Vineyard, this wine shows intense violet aromatics, bright freshness and acidity which has come to define Decero Malbec. The 2015 Malbec being one of our lighter Malbec wines of recent years which is in harmony with its supple tannins gently integrated over 14 months in French oak barrels.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!

Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc 2017
100% Sauvignon Blanc

This wine showcases lots of strawberry and black cherry notes, with a hint of tobacco leaf. The finish is well balanced by elegant tannins, followed by a touch of black pepper and cranberry.”

Next, SOHO will pour a DLD Red Mountain Syrah 2013 from Red Mountain AVA, WA. .The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Dark purple, almost black color. Dried fig and blueberry compote. Chocolate cherry, black licorice and cinnamon spice.

The finish is long and very well structured.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Dusted Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 from Columbia Valley, WA. Notes on the wine,

Next, SOHO will pour a L’Ecole No. 41 Syrah 2015 from Columbia Valley. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Dark, robust and spicy this full bodied Syrah shows rich flavors of black & blue berries, peppercorn, and licorice through an earthy finish.”

“Garnet red in color, the wine opens with warm, sweet and inviting scents of blackberry jam, raspberry, forest floor, vanilla and cedar. The wine is very broad and open on the palate, with mingling flavors of fresh, ripe black cherry, restrained oak, vanilla and clove that continue well into the lingering finish. The luxurious mouthfeel provided by velvety, mature tannins assures that this wine will continue to improve in the bottle.”

“Vibrant ruby red in color, La Brisa Pinot Noir opens with hints of earth, crushed rose petals, and red fruits laced with a wild character.

We’re in the thick of Atlanta summer now, and weary from the heat. After long days of working and sitting in traffic, we need something to look forward to, and Sonoma wines are just the ticket! This week, we have a pinot noir, a merlot, and a beautiful red blend to share with you, to make your summer woes a little more palatable.

First, SOHO will pour a Banshee Pinot Noir 2016 from Sonoma County. The winemaker offers,

“The 2016 edition is an exciting, yet friendly wine, bursting at the seams with aromas of macerated wild berries and an elegant, soft earth undertone. The flavors combine both sweet and tart, reminiscent of Santa Rosa plums and wild blackberries that grow so commonly in Sonoma Wine Country. The finish is bright, slightly herbal, and savory making this an excellent food wine, as well as a charming drinking experience by itself.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Bench Knights Valley Merlot 2016 from Knights Valley. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Brilliant ruby red hue, the nose is expressive with cherry cream, blackberry reduction and cedar. The palate is creamy and lush, flavors of pie crust, dark forest fruits and tangy Marion-berries meld together on a lasting, elegant finish.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Highway 12 Red Blend 2015 from Sonoma County. Notes on the wine,

“A fruity, leathery nose offers a glimpse into what unfolds on the palate. Hefty bright notes of ripe plum, currant jelly and a tinge of sweet tobacco fill the senses with the first sip. As this breathes, it morphs into something exceptionally smooth and round, a result of the introduction of soft tannins and lightly burnt toffee oak. The fig jam finish lingers but just long enough to go in for the next sip.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!

Next, SOHO will pour a Windracer Pinot Noir 2014 from Russian River. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Aromas of dark cherry, mocha, and sassafras immediately introduces you to the bold personality of the Russian River Valley. The robust aromas give way to rich black plums followed by dark chocolate nuances. Perfectly balanced, the full-bodied structure displays great concentration and firm but refined tannins. This lush mouthfeel showcases the lively characteristics and quality the Russian River Valley is known for.”
