The final week of Napa wines begins TONIGHT at Flight Night! What a great run it’s been; we’ve enjoyed seeing our guests enjoy our favorite wines and the feedback to our new tapas has been amazing.

Truchard-Winery-1

First, SOHO will pour a Truchard Pinot Noir 2015 from Carneros, Napa Valley.  The winemaker offers,

“Rich aromas of black cherry, pomegranate, and wild strawberry; with hints of rhubarb, tea, and earth. The mouth is silky; with flavors of cranberry, ripe plum, and sweet vanilla. Firm acidity and delicate tannins focus the palate and provide a lingering finish of spice and red fruit.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Luna Reserve Chardonnay 2017 from Napa Valley. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Lemon and honey on the nose; tangerine, green apple, creamy toasted almond, and citrus on the palate.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Pine Ridge “Stags Leap District” Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 from Stags Leap, Napa Valley. Notes on the wine,

“The ruby/black color of this wine tells you it is pure Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of floral sweet pea, sun-ripened plums, sweet oak, mushroom, and wet earth leap from the glass. The bold, rich, mouth-filling flavors of blackberry, black licorice, espresso, and cocoa powder combine with juicy acidity, tobacco, and tea tannins. Enjoy this well-structured, complex, and layered wine with a silky, lingering finish for years to come.”

First, SOHO will pour a Honig Sauvignon Blanc 2018 from Napa Valley.  The winemaker offers,

“Bright, and fresh. The flavors and aromas are reminiscent of peaches, lemon curd, white grapefruit, and passion fruit with perfectly balanced notes of citrus, stone fruit. The fullness of the mid-palate is complemented by a crisp, lengthy finish.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Acacia Pinot Noir 2016 from Carneros, Napa Valley. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“The 2016 Carneros Pinot Noir opens beautifully offering layers of red-fruit aromas; Bing cherry, cranberry and sun-ripened raspberry. The aromas ring true on the silky textured palate where the juicy fruit core intermingles with baking spice, black tea and wet stone minerality.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Pozzan Zinfandel 2016 from Oakville, Napa Valley. Notes on the wine,

“The 2016 Michael Pozzan Oakville Zinfandel glows a deep ruby red in the glass. The nose is powerful, with explosive aromas of bright ripe raspberry, yellow peach, candied cherries, and a touch of sweet summer hay. The mouth is dramatically expressive, with volatile flavors of peach, boysenberry, cantaloupe, and milk chocolate, all balanced by a frame of sweet French oak – vanilla, cinnamon, and clove. The wine’s lengthy finish is pure Tahitian vanilla bean.”

First, SOHO will pour Sequoia Grove Chardonnay 2015 from Napa Valley.  The winemaker offers,

“The nose pops with an immediate hit of fresh lemon rolling quickly into lemon curd and warm toasted almonds. The fresh fruit nose is balanced nicely with secondary aromas of custard and brioche, ripe melon, pear, and poached pear. On the palate the wine is full of flavor: perfectly nutty toast and marzipan. The mid-palate is creamy with a hint of nutmeg and finishing with fresh citrus.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Elyse Nero Misto 2015 from Napa Valley. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Like a hippo on a tightrope, the 2015 Nero Misto (Italian for “Mixed Black”) is big, bodacious, and above all, balanced. Dark purple in color with aromas of briar patch, green peppercorns, violets, and earth, this homage to the Cal-Ital blends of early Napa is a serious red wine. On the palate, it offers a lively and focused mouthfeel with mixed berry flavors and an amazing balance of fruit, tannin, and acidity.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Robert Mondavi Cabernet 2016 from Napa Valley. Notes on the wine,

“Our 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers mouth filling, deeply intense blackberry fruit across the palate with clove and cardamom spice complexity and dusty tannins that add structure to the juicy fullness of the fruit.”

First, SOHO will pour Swanson Merlot 2016 from Napa Valley.  The winemaker offers,

“Deep dark in the glass with gorgeous aromas of blue fruit, pie crust and a touch of coconut husk. On the palate the rich texture combines well with the full bodied tannins and ripe plum along with cassis flavors. Layers of fruit intertwine with subtle secondary flavors of briar, cigar box and a touch of graphite minerality. Drinking well now but will improve with careful cellaring over the next 8-12 years.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Robert Mondavi Pinot Noir 2015 from Carneros, Napa Valley. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“The heady aromatics and refined silkiness of pinot noir show themselves here with a swirl of wild dark cherry and ripe, red plum aromas seamlessly layered with hints of dusty cocoa and dried herb complexity finishing with an intriguing touch of pink peppercorn spice to round out the lush fruit. 100% Pinot Noir.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Unum “Spring Mountain” Red 2013 from Napa Valley. Notes on the wine,

“ASPECT: Ripe wild-cherry red in color with an intense maroon rim. AROMA: Subtle hints of ripe red berries with smooth, rounded balsamic notes and traces of smoky, toasted elements. TASTE: A well-structured, potent, velvety, and fleshy wine in the mouth, boasting powerful, rounded tannins.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Tosalet Priorat 2014 from Priorat, Spain. The wine is described by the winemaker,

Pure and very intense aromas reminiscent of red berry fruit such as cranberries, red cherries and raspberries combined with mineral notes of flint and hints of eucalyptus. The palate is dry, full bodied with rich concentrated juicy fruit, firm but ripe tannins and a refreshing acidity making this a great food wine that will age very well for 4-6 years.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Bodegas Langa, “ π “ Calatayud 2016 from Calatayud, Spain. Notes on the wine,

“Cherry red, very deep with purplish tints. Fragrant nose of mature red and black fruits. Elegant vintage aromas, with hints of cocoa and tobacco. Complex and elegant. Unctuous on the mouth, fat and very glyceric. Sweet tannins, round and velvety.”

SOHO Has The Essence Of Spain for Flight Night!

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

As we move deeper into April, we also dig into the true essence of Spain and its glorious wines with two Riojas and a Cava this week! The tapas are truly stand alone as well, but these authentic Spanish dishes are better enjoyed with their wine pairings! Overall, the entire Spanish wine flight with paired tapas is an extraordinary experience not to be missed. We do hope we see you this week!

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

First, SOHO will pour a Cava Naveran, Cava Brut from Catalonia, Spain.  The winemaker offers,

“Pale green-tinged yellow. A suave, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh citrus and orchard fruits and pungent flowers, and a suave floral note builds in the glass. Silky and penetrating on the palate, offering intense Meyer lemon and green apple flavors that deepen on the back half. The floral quality repeats on a long, nervy finish that shows very good clarity and final bite.”

Next, SOHO will pour a El Vino Prodigo “Placeres Sensoriales” Rioja 2016 from Rioja. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“An intense cherry color indicates that this is the maximum expression of tempranillo 100%, all natural, without any dressings or sophisticated elaborations, only grapes harvested from 40 year vines planted in vessel, unloaded in a concrete lake with a capacity of 1000 cantaras, and fermented for 10 days, with branch, without squeezing, completely whole grapes, with the aim of trying to do what our grandparents, when no enology, no technology and really wines only tasted wine.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Mariano J Locort Gran Reserva 2008 from Rioja. Notes on the wine,

“Red, with intense hues. The nose shows an aromatic intensity. To the palate it is velvety and elegant with a powerful finish.”

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

SOHO loves Spanish Wines In the Springtime…

Flight Night at SOHO is obviously one of our favorite days of the week, but there is a way that it can only get better: the weather cooperates in Atlanta, and patio season begins! In true spanish style, our wines and tapas pairings are best enjoyed al fresco this particular time of the year; once winter is finally behind us, and before hot summers descend. So let’s raise a glass to perfect patio weather and delicious spanish wines this week! Won’t you join us?

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

Viñedo de Emilio Rojo.

First, SOHO will pour a Gotas de Mar Rias Baixas Albarino 2017 from Rias Baixas.  The winemaker offers,

“Brilliant pale lemon color. Intense stringent aromas of peaches, white flowers, stony minerals and a hint of fresh sea breeze. The palate offers an energetic combination steely acidity with charming peachy fruit and stony minerals. It finishes clean with a mouth watering acidity and long complex persistency.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Bodegas Avancia Godello 2016 from Valdeorras. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Sourced from one of the oldest, most traditional vineyards planted in Valdeorras, Avancia Godello expresses the authenticity the history of Valdeorras and the oldest Godello clones in the world. A completely unique white wine that ages beautifully and has been recognized by Robert Parker as Spain’s best Godello. Godello was almost extinct at the end of the 1980’s, so it is extremely rare to find a Godello produced from a single vineyard planted in 1904.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Torres Ribera del Duero Celeste Crianza 2015 from the Ribera del duero. Notes on the wine,

“Cherry red color with garnet highlights. Delicious, voluptuous aroma of very ripe black fruit (blueberries) with fine roasted coffee and dried fruit (dried plum) notes. Dense, fleshy, with sensuous flavor sensations that are impressively persistent.”

If anyone does wine and tapas pairings well, it’s SPAIN! This month at SOHO, we are honoring this amazing country and it’s culinary gifts with wines from our favorite Spanish vineyards, and Chef Joey’s creative spin on tapas pairings. We think we’ve done it justice; feel free to stop by and tell us if you agree!

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

First, SOHO will pour a Domini de la Cartoixa Priorat Crosses ‘15 from Priorat, California.  The winemaker offers,

“Crossos is a wine with a cherry red colour of high intensity. Lovely aromas in which red and black fruits stand out; hints of balsamic, thyme, orange peel and species. Medium bodied and good intensity in the mouth, well balanced; where fruit and freshness are pleasantly expressed.”

Next, SOHO will pour a RK Rekaide Txacoli de Getaria 2016 from Txakoli de Getaria. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Txakoli is a young, fruity white wine. Of moderate strength (11º) and with a slight characteristic acidity, it is a highly unique, distinctive wine. It should be served chilled; that way, it gives off its full range of aromas along with tiny carbonic acid bubbles, which is the result of its characteristic winemaking process.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell 2016 from the Jumilla. Notes on the wine,

“Deep purple/black color. Explosive aromas of ripe currant, red berries and smoked notes. Rich, powerful and voluminous on the attack, a huge mouthful of crème-de-cassis concentration, silken and juicy in the midpalate with excellent length and persistence,
and a long spicy well-balanced finish including toasted notes provided by the French
wood.”

First, SOHO will pour a Marietta Cellars “Christo” 2015 from North Coast, California.  The winemaker offers,

“Beautiful blackberry fruit, peppery herbs, underbrush, and a hint of olive all give way to a medium to full bodied, plump, textured beauty that shines for its charm, texture, and pleasure-bent style.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Jackson Estate Pinot Noir 2016 from Anderson Valley. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“The wine shows its cool-climate origins in bright acidity, accenting the rich flavors of
blueberries, black cherries, cola and dusty spices. Firm minerality grounds the wine.
The tannins are powerful, yet with silkiness on the finish, while oak barrel aging brings
a smoky, sandalwood note. Beautiful to drink now on release, this Pinot will age well over the next six-plus years easily.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Marietta Cellars “Arme” Cabernet ‘15 from the North Coast. Notes on the wine,

“The 2015 Armé, Marietta’s Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend, is fabulous, not to mention a tremendous value. Grilled herbs, plums, blueberry jam, spice, mint and leather give the 2015 its nuance and complexity.”
