As we wrap up another amazing year at SOHO, we would like to thank our guests, friends, and family who dined with us and allowed us to be a part of their day to day, and also milestone moments. As a thank you, for the month of December, we bring back the guests’ favorite wines for an encore performance as we close out the end of the year! Will your favorite be a feature?

This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, December 12th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through December 18th.

December Week 2-page-001.jpg

First, SOHO will pour a Benton Lane Pinot Noir 2014 from Willamette Valley, OR.  The winemaker offers,

“Our 2014 Estate Pinot Noir is there. The aromatics are smoky cedar and floral notes. They are delicate and not over powering. There is rich, black cherry flavors,  candied fruit sweetness, a slight hint of black licorice, and rose petals. The wine is amazing in its balance. You really have to taste it to get it. I have no idea why some wines are balanced and some not. I do know that this one is…..enjoy.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Piatelli Premium Reserve Malbec 2016 from Mendoza, Argentina. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Intensely aromatic on the nose. Aromas of blueberries, plums, & blackberries. Extremely well balanced fruit to acidity balance. This is a medium to heavy weight wine. Mouth-filling, and smooth finish.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Justin Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 from Paso Robles. Notes on the wine,

“Full bodied with bright black cherry, blackcurrant and berry fruit with an underpinning of oak barrel accents on entry. The mid palate shows continued fruit with savory herbal notes, mint and a hint of violet. The finish is clean, long and layered with lingering dark fruit surrounded by soft chewy tannins balanced by crisp acidity and subtle floral notes.”

, , , , , , , , , ,

Welcome to the last week of Wines from Down Under, and the Southern Hemisphere! We can’t think of a better way to finish these beautiful regions with three reds that will knock your socks off, PERFECT for this cold weather we’re having in Atlanta at the moment! Paired with some hearty, savory tapas, you will leave us happy and satiated, two things that we love!

This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, November 28th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through December 4th.

Cape wine route, South Africa

First, SOHO will pour a Boschendal Elgin Pinot Noir 2015 from Western Cape, South Africa. The winemaker offers,

“Translucent ruby with a youthful strawberry edge. On the nose a vivid flourish of raspberry, cranberry and red cherry aromas with discreet roasted nuts. Palate is an intricately structured wine with a delicate entry, blossoming into a poised concentration of wild berry flavours and oak spice. Gains complexity and richness before ending with a long, finely textured finish.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Yalumba Old Bush Vine Grenache ‘16 from Barossa Valley, AU. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Vibrant and elegant Grenache, the old bush vines really display their class in the 2016 vintage. The wine is fragrant, fresh and full of red cherries, raspberries and crunchy pomegranates. Savory characters evolve into spices and dried herbs. A concise yet fleshy palate with rich red fruits weaving through a juicy, mouth-watering mid palate, with elegant tannins and fresh acidity to finish.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a The Chocolate Block 2016 from Western Cape, SA. Notes on the wine,

“The nose is exceptionally perfumed with an abundance of complex red and dark berry fruit, violets and intense aromas of white pepper. Dark brooding fruit follows through onto a structured, opulent palate with notes of cardamom, cumin, cloves and black pepper. The midpalate is rich, textured and balanced with integrated acidity, cocoa powdery tannins and a definite cedarwood character derived from French oak. White pepper lingers on a smooth, lifted finish.”

The recent chilly bite in the air in Atlanta has made us want to hibernate (with wine of course) as we enter into holiday season mode.  Fall is such a great time of year here, with a few patio days sprinkled in for optimal foliage watching, coupled with wine drinking!

Our wine feature this next two weeks illustrates the perfect drinking choice: A lovely Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from New Zealand, and a complex Cab from Australia.  The tapas pairings are on point as well, and we would encourage you to stop by to say hello, and take a moment to enjoy life before the holiday craziness hits.  We look forward to seeing you!

This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, November 14th, will last two weeks, and the wines and their tapas will be available through November 27th.

🇦🇺 SOHO’s Going “Down Under” With Wines From Australia & NZ!

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Australian and New Zealand wineries are such a delight to feature!  There’s more difference than similarity in what they offer, of course.  New Zealand is best known for sauvignon blanc and pinot noir.  Australia, which is best known for its amazing shiraz (the grape known elsewhere as syrah) is really a wildly diverse country with a bunch of divergent regions that specialize in grapes of all sorts. We could happily drink these wines for MONTHS and not be able to enjoy them all!

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, November 7th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through November 13th.

First, SOHO will pour a Kim Crawford “Rise and Shine” Pinot Noir 2014 from South Island, NZ. The winemaker offers,

Next, SOHO will pour a Small Gully “The Formula Robert’s Shiraz” 2014 from Adelaide Plains, AU. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“A big full flavored Shiraz produced from 50+ year old vines grown at Robert’s vineyard on the Adelaide Plains. Well balanced and textured, this wine shows savory notes of tar, leather and spice intermingled with chocolate and raisins. Soft persistent tannins and excellent length.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Franklin Tate Cabernet Merlot 2016 from Margaret River. Notes on the wine,

“Flavors of ripe blackcurrants and dark plums dominant the palate with a savory hint of black olive. The fruit is integrated with oak flavors of cinnamon and cedar spice. Chalky tannins give this wine length.”

Tags

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

Vegetarian tapas with wine pairings? This took even us by surprise when our Chef, Joey chose the theme this week! But what a great surprise it is, as vegetarian food often gets a bad rap. There are so many new ways to create cusisine these days that it just follows that SOHO would try something new as well. And yes, we were pleasantly surprised at the delishiousness of these tapas, and even happier when we tried these amazing red wines as pairings! We think you’ll be happy too….

October Week 4-page-001

October Week 3-page-001

First, SOHO will pour a Four Vines “The Biker” from Paso Robles. The winemaker offers,

What a gorgeous wine this is.”

Beef Tapas + Red Wines🍷= A Perfect Flight Night Match!

Tags

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!
