This week, on flight night, Wednesday, August 18, SOHO Atlanta will feature the wines and flavors of Monterey, California.
First, SOHO will pour a 2008 Scott Family Estate Chardonnay. This wine offers aromas of apple pie and butterscotch. On the palate, the wine offers flavors of pear, carmel apple and pineapple, as well as a long and balanced finish.
Next, SOHO will pour a 2008 Sawbuck Malbec. This wine, a blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah, offers aromas of red apples, blackberries and vanilla. The Malbec has a smooth and long finish, with hints of spice and leather.
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2008 Talbott Logan Pinot Noir. Blueberry, ripe cherry and floral aromas are found in this wine . On the palate the Pinot Noir is rich and silky, with flavors of blueberry and cherry-cola.
