This August, SOHO will explore the wines and flavors of California. SOHO will feature tastes of Santa Barbara on flight night, Wednesday, August 4.
First, SOHO will pour a 2006 Villa Mt. Eden Grand Reserve Chardonnay. Produced from the Bien Nacido Vineyard, this lively and clean wine offers juicy and ripe fruit flavors.
Next, SOHO will pour a 2007 Demetria Estate Pantheon. The Demetria estate is family-owned and farmed biodynamically. The wine is red blend composed of 65% Syrah and offers dark fruit notes and complex earthiness. Finally, SOHO will pour a 2007 Lincourt Pinot Noir. This elegant and complex wine offers flavors of ripe plums, blackberry and tea on the palate.
SOHO’s Chef Joe has created three California-inspired tapas to pair with each wine. The following will be available until August 11.
