SOHO Atlanta Restaurant will finish showcasing the wines and flavors of Napa Valley, California, on flight night, Wednesday, May 29.
First, SOHO will pour a 2011 Robert Sinskey Vin Gris of Pinot Noir Carneros. The wine has “fresh acidity and brightness, with delicate strawberry aromas and flavors, a silky mouthfeel, and elegant mineral-laced finish.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2010 Tres Sabores ¿Por Qué No? The winemaker says of the blend: “It’s everyone’s favorite party, pizza, picnic, BBQ and bistro wine thanks to the spirited joy it brings to the palate. The somewhat unconventional blend lends it an exotic charm. We use our best of the rest of our Estate cellar wines along with a selection of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Cabernet, and Petit Verdot from other distinguished vineyards.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2010 Emblem Cabernet Sauvignon. The winemaker says, “By blending fruit from Napa’s volcanic hillside soils and the deeper alluvial soils of the valley floor, we accomplished our goal of crafting a wine that boasts a beautifully rounded mouthfeel and layers of rich, complex flavor.”
SOHO’s executive chef, Joe Ahn, has created three tapas plates to pair with each Napa Valley wine.
