, , , , , , , , , ,

We at SOHO love a good success story, and the Pacific Northwest wine region is an amazing example of overcoming advertisty!  Not only did the vinters prove the experts wrong, they’ve created a world-class wine region, and have not only succeeded in growing grapes, but expanded the range of viable grapes as well!

There are several top-tier winemakers making amazing wines here, and it’s not just the Pinot Noir, which of course, is exceptional.  This week, we also showcase a Chenin Blanc and a Syrah that will stop you in your tracks.  We invite you to sip and swirl some of the best wines that Washington and Oregon have to offer.  We know you won’t be disappointed!

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday September 20th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through September 26th.

First, SOHO will pour a 2015 L’Ecole Chenin Blanc from Columbia Valley, and offers the following tasting notes,

“This fresh and vibrant Chenin Blanc shows highly expressive aromatics of pink grapefruit, passion fruit and orange blossom, with flavors of lychee, tangerine and apple on a balanced, crisp mineral finish.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2014 Bethel Heights Estate Pinot Noir from Eola-Amity Hills. The wine is described as,

“Floral black pepper and warm Christmas spice frame red fruit aromas of currant and pomegranate. The palate enjoys volume without heavy weight, and the punchy red fruits carry a savory depth that fills the front, mid, and back palate. The finish is lengthy and high toned, the silky tannins focused by bright, balanced acidity, suggesting a promising longevity in the cellar.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2015 K Milbrandt Syrah from Wahluke Slope.  The winemaker says,

“Shimmering, this wine is alive with energy. Vibrant aromatics, red and black fruits and heaps of minerality on a long focused finish. Great today, great in ten years, the Great Milbrandt!”

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

First, SOHO will pour a 2014 Chehalem Inox Chardonnay from Willamette Valley, and offers the following tasting notes,

“Rich, white and yellow fruit is in the forefront, with peaks of citrus zest, light spice and mineral, honey, and white blossoms. On the palate we see slightly bruised apple with the tartness of Granny Smiths, dried mango, finishing out to a long, broad, rich finish. This is INOX at the pinnacle of balance, profiting from the ripe summer and the cooler harvest period to give us both richness and acid, as well as great purity of fruit.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2015 Anne Amie Vineyards Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley.  The wine is described as,

“AROMA – dark cherry, sweet tobacco, dusty road, orange peel, maple candy, cardamom, black tea, kirsch FLAVOR – sweet dark cherries and berries, forest floor, anise, dark chocolate nibs, chai, hint of black pepper FINISH – long with rich, smooth tannins and acidity.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2015 Slight of Hand Cellars Spellbinder from Columbia Valley.  The winemaker says,

“Elegant and full bodied, while still approachable, it boasts fresh fruit aromas and flavors of black cherries, raspberries, and currants, with just a hint of cedar from older French oak barrels in which it was aged. The tannins are completely resolved, providing a plush textured finish, bouyed by its fresh acidity.”

Hello Fall! With the cooler weather setting into Atlanta, it’s a great time to be sitting on a patio, and drinking red wines.  September brings Pacific Northwest wines at SOHO, and we couldn’t be more pleased to offer our guests some of our favorites!  Come familiarize yourself with this region, and enjoy the wines and their tapas pairings!

Why is the Pacific Northwest so unique?  Washington State and Oregon are amazing wine producing states, each in their own right.  What sets them apart from many other New World wine producing areas is their ability to straddle the stylistic fence.  Their warm weather days and cool nights is what gives them the lively ripe fruit of New World wines with the refreshing acidity of Old World wines.

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday September 6th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through September 12th.

The palate shows tropical fruits while remaining bright and balanced by mouthwatering acidity.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2014 Point North Pinot Noir from Oregon.  The wine is described as,

“Our Oregon Pinot Noir is deep garnet in color with complex aromas of raspberry, blackberry and black pepper with a touch of leather. On the palate, the wine is medium- bodied with dark fruit flavors, raspberries and earthy spice notes. The wine has a bright mouth feel integrated with soft round tannins for a lengthy and complex finish.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2013 Chateau St Michelle Indian Wells Red Blend from Columbia Valley.  The winemaker says,

“The Indian Wells Red Blend is an easy to enjoy red from warmer climate vineyards.  The wine reflects the rich, round powerful style of Washington fruit, highlighting seven varietals. It is a true example of the art of blending. The wine offers jammy boysenberry flavors from the Syrah with a luscious concentration from the Merlot.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2014 Domaine de la Noblaie Chinon from Loire Valley.  The wine is described as,

“The Chinon rouge from the property is a case study in the balance between power and elegance, spice and softness, and fat and acidity.

If you love France as much as we do, then you’ll understand why we pick the wines that we do, and offer the tapas to pair with them!  The French culture of enjoying wine while eating light and flavorful cuisine is well known around the world.  It is, indeed, a way of life, and a magnificent way of savoring the small things on a day to day basis.  We aim to adopt this practice at SOHO; won’t you join us?

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday July 19th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through July 25th.

First, SOHO will pour a 2014 Domaine des Hâtes Chablis from Chablis, Burgundy, and offers the following tasting notes,

“Clearly it has the scope to improve much more over the next couple of years. It is richness than the Petit Chablis and its natural weight of fruit almost masks its strong minerality. However, as it opens out in the glass the complexity starts to flourish. Impressive. Drink from 2016.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2015 M. Chapoutier Belleruche Rouge from Côtes du Rhone. The wine is described as,

“Garnet red in color, this wine emits aromas of red fruits such as morello cherries and spices of licorice and grey pepper. In the mouth this wine has a great structure with firm and silky tannins.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2014 Gerard Bertrand “Kosmos” from  Languedoc-Roussillon. The winemaker says,

“Kosmos has a deep ruby-red color. This powerful, elegant and nicely-balanced cuvee is endowed with generous red fruits aromas. The tannins are mature, subtle and the lingering finish is amazingly intense. Kosmos has also an important potential for cellaring.”
