This day, September 11th, is always a little different; a little harder than the rest of the year. We will enjoy Flight Night as always, but today we raise a glass to all those affected on 9/11, and the strength and commonality that makes us Americans. Let’s sip some wine, reflect, and be kind to ourselves and others!

This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, September 11th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through September 17th.

First, SOHO will pour a Eyrie Vineyard Rose of Pinot 2018 from Willamette Valley.  The winemaker offers,

“Not just another fruit bomb, the aromatics of this wine create an aromatic spectrum ranging from bright strawberries and pink grapefruit, to fresh turned loam and savory herbs. The palate is long and precise with a round, silky texture. The evolving finish compliments and echoes the primary fruit of the palate.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Angela Estate Pinot Noir 2014 from Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“This vintage was drier and warmer than usual, resulting in large, ripe clusters and a lot of it. Yields were almost double in some cases, resulting in four to fve tons per acre! Harvest officially began in early September, nearly three weeks earlier than previous vintages with low bird effects and disease pressure. Pinots from 2014 will display pronounced aromas, deep color, ripe developed favors, with alcohols ranging from 13 – 14%.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Del Rio Claret 2015 from Rogue Valley, Oregon. Notes on the wine,

“Complex and rich, with deep flavors of red raspberry and ripe strawberry flavors, with herbal elements of thyme and rosemary. Framed with toasty oak notes and balanced tannins that provide structure for this rich and elegant blend. Intricately designed for enjoyment now or to be cellared for aging.”

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

Next, SOHO will pour a Granville “Farmhouse Cuvee” Pinot Noir 2017 from Dundee Hills. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“The Farmhouse is a perfect example of Dundee Hills character. Brimming with succulent red and black fruit, herbaceous with slight cola nuances on a silky frame and deepening through the finish. Effortless drinkability–drink now or later, you won’t be upset either way.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Chateau St Michelle Cold Creek Cabernet 2013 from Columbia Valley. Notes on the wine,

“Cabernet from this iconic 45-year-old vineyard consistently delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. The wine offers black cherry flavors and chocolate notes with typical Cold Creek density and user friendly power. This is 100% Cabernet because Cold Creek Cab shines on its own.”

Roth-FFWS-Pod

First, SOHO will pour a Luna Reserve Chardonnay 2017 from Napa Valley.  The winemaker offers,

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

Next, SOHO will pour a Roth Red Blend 2016 from Alexander Valley. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Our 2016 Reserve Red wine is a classic Bordeaux blend with inviting aromas of black plum, blackberry, cedar and baking spices. Bright red fruits, minerality and vanilla bean complement the well-integrated tannins. Juicy raspberry and earthy notes provide depth and detail for a lingering finish. While approachable now, it will benefit from a few years in the cellar.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 from Sonoma. Notes on the wine,

“The 2016 Sonoma is all about big fruit, offering layered aromas of black cherry and woodland berries. Ripe fruit character carries through on the palate along with undertones of caramel and cedar. Bright and juicy, with a plush and velvety texture, this wine is readily enjoyable on its own and versatile enough to be paired with anything from casual pub fare to a classic ribeye.”

9095508

First, SOHO will pour a Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon ‘16 from Napa Valley.  The winemaker offers,

“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.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Plungerhead Zinfandel 2016 from Lodi. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Our 2016 Plungerhead Old Vine Zinfandel holds a dark ruby color with aromas of brambly raspberry, fresh-from-the-oven cherry pie, cinnamon-infused tea, toasted cedar and clove. The flavors start with touches of Bing cherry, sweetened cranberry, raspberry jam, caramel and toasted coconut. The finish lingers with a medium body and notes of dried cranberry, Mexican vanilla and a round mouthfeel from American Oak aging.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Highway 12 Red Blend 2016 from Sonoma. 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 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.”
