First, SOHO will pour a 2019 Matanzas Creek Winery Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma County, California.

Aromas of fresh ruby grapefruit, white peach, white lilly, jasmine, and passion fruit. Flavors of fresh quince, honeydew melon, succulent pear, jasmine, and honey-suckle.

The second wine is a 2019 Raeburn Pinot Noir from Sonoma, California.

Brilliant crimson in color, Raeburn Russian River Valley Pinot Noir leads with pleasing aromas of baking spice and vanilla. The palate is marked with stunning fruit flavors of lush wild blueberry, raspberry and blackberry with undertones of roasted hazelnut. The finish is graceful and sophisticated.

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2016 Home Field Red Blend from Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, California.

A likable Zinfandel-driven blend, this has sizable components of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carignan and Petite Sirah, too—the whole adding up to a spicy, herbal and juicy offering of tart red fruit. Generous oak and moderate tannin give it powerful smoothness and lasting richness.

First, SOHO will pour a 2018 Buehler Vineyards Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley in Sonoma, California.

Balance and proportion best describe the character of our Russian River Chardonnay; it displays abundant floral and stone fruit aromas lightly accented by toasty, graham cracker sur-lie qualities. The mouth feel is creamy and full but the natural acidity of the Russian River fruit carries this velvet textured package to a long, clean finish.

The second wine is a 2019 Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee from Sonoma Valley, California.

Lush layers of ripe berries with hints of toasted oak are displayed in this vibrant Bordeaux-inspired red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Juicy red fruit, black currants and tobacco come together in this medium-bodied wine. The silky tannins, hints of oak and cedar, and elegant structure finish deliver a real crowd-pleaser.

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2019 Dry Creek Zinfandel from Sonoma County, California.

This vintage presents enticing aromatics of dried cranberry and boysenberry with hints of cocoa powder, nutmeg, dried sage and cedar. On the palate, brambly flavors of blackberry and black cherry come forward with bright acidity complimented by deeper notes of dark chocolate, espresso and black pepper. The tannins are silky and smooth to lend a round, rich mouthfeel. From start to finish, this remarkable wine offers refreshing acidity paired with excellent structure and a round, rich mouthfeel.

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.

Reassurance to our guests, from the SOHO Team

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

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
