The wines and flavors of the Pacific Northwest shine at SOHO this evening for Flight Night! The wines and tapas debuting tonight are available through Tuesday, September 28.

Please make reservations here: https://www.opentable.com/r/soho-atlanta

First, SOHO will pour a 2020 Mile Marker 71 Pinot Gris from Oregon.

Notes of lemon curd, dried mango, and honey. The mouthwatering palate is weighted by a slight viscosity.

The second wine is a 2020 Kate Arnold Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon.

Aromas of cherry, red plum, raspberry, and lavender. Flavors of fennel, Mission fig, plum, date, blackberry, and forest floor. Due to the proximity of the Washington wildfires, there are hints of campfire in the aroma and taste.

Finally, SOHO will pour a NV Chasing Rain Cabernet Sauvignon from Red Mountain, Washington.

Blackberries, cherry cola, hints of mocha, and dried herb. Full-bodied with generous density on the fore pal-ate, leading to a pleasing mid palate. Long finish dominated by black cherry and vanilla.

SOHO’s Executive Chef Todd Paige has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines:

First, SOHO will pour a 2020 Big Salt White Wine from Oregon.

Wildly aromatic, laced with Gewurz and Muscat over-tones, but framed by citrusy Riesling. Salty bergamot, lemon, nectarine and white tea– exotic fruits fill out the nose. The palate is filled with the texture of Gewurz, herbal hints from Pinot Blanc, but quickly washed back with classic Riesling acidity.

The second wine is a 2019 Jezebel Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon.

Fruit-forward, approachable but balanced and typically Oregon Pinot Noir; light to medium-bodied with bright, red fruit flavors and a smooth finish.

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2019 In Sheep’s Clothing Cabernet Sauvignon from Columbia Valley, Washington

Layers of cassis, blueberries, and black cherries, this wine lends to a New World style of fruit with more of an Old World structure with a hint of wood smoke. This wine fully embraces an integral part of classic Cabernet Sauvignon by highlighting a complex blend of dried herbs: anise, thyme and bay leaf.

SOHO’s Executive Chef Todd Paige has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines:

2020 Big Salt White Wine
Oregon
45% Riesling, 35% Gewurztraminer, 11% Pinot Blanc, 9% Early Muscat, 1% Others

Refreshing with vibrant fruit and balanced acidity, this wine shows pretty orange blossom with layers of honeysuckle, honeydew melon, and lemongrass that persist through to a clean, succulent finish.

The second wine is a 2019 Pike Road Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, OR.

Beautiful ruby red color with aromas of black currant layered with cinnamon, clove spice, and rose petal. The palate has bold flavors of cherry, raspberry, rhubarb, with hints of bitter dark chocolate, and mushroom. Fin-ishes warm, silky, and long.

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2018 Novelty Hill Royal Slope Red Blend from Columbia Valley, WA

An aromatic, medium-bodied wine with mouth-watering layers of wild berries, sweet cherry and black currant. Balanced and lively across the mid-palate, with a fresh, fruit-forward finish that lasts.

First, SOHO will pour a 2020 Hedges Sauvignon Blanc from Columbia Valley, WA.

of citrus and lychee lead into a delicately refreshing yet layered finish.

Finally, SOHO will pour a NV14 J. Bookwalter Notebook Red Blend from Columbia Valley, WA.

Heaps of youthful red fruits like black cherries, plums, red currants and figs wrapped with cedar, caramel and choco-late. Succulent smooth fruit begins, with flavors of baker’s chocolate, black cherry, blackberry, toast, dried herbs, tobacco and cola finish.

Thank you so much for your continued support of SOHO American Bistro. We are so happy to serve you, our loyal friends and patrons, for over 23 years. We are also excited about the new friends we make as people hear about us through your kind words and recommendations.

During these complex times we wanted to assure you we are observing the highest standards for sanitation and cleanliness. We are going the extra mile to assure a safe and healthful environment. Please see some of the efforts that help us stand out in the neighborhood.

•Our entire staff is back in masks. We enjoyed the break but current conditions warrant the extra step.

•We sanitize every table in between use with disposable table wipes designed specifically for the purpose.

•We have increased outdoor seating to accommodate those wanting fresh air. We will start taking limited reservations on the patio beginning in September—these will NOT be available on OpenTable. You must speak with a host or manager as we are limiting our reservations outside.

•Weather permitting, we will open the Paces room to invite the fresh air into our dining room.

•We have a service coming through and sanitizing our entire environment throughout the week.

Please let us know if you have any concerns. We appreciate your feedback and trust. We will continue to update all of our practices based on the National Restaurant Association’s “best practices.”

Warmly,

The SOHO Management & Team
