First, SOHO will pour a 2009 Honig Sauvignon Blanc. The Sauvignon Blanc offers notes of orange blossom notes on the nose. On the palate, the wine features flavors of lemon, melon, peach and nectarine.

Next, SOHO will pour a 2009 Novy Syrah. On the palate the Syrah is peppery, with fresh plum and wild berry flavors. The wine is complex and spicy.

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2007 Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon. The Caberent is made Bordeaux-style with forward, ripe fruit flavors of black currant and berry. On the palate the wine is also spicy with gentle oak nuances.
