First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Trefethen Dry Riesling. The winemaker says of the Riesling: “Aomas of jasmine, orange blossom and lime lead to light tropical and floral notes on the palate. The wine has delightful acidity and minerality and ends with flavors of ruby red grapefruit and peaches.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2010 B Side Bordeaux Blend. The winemaker says of the blend: “The wine opens with a heady bouquet of black cherries, dried plums, blackberries and peat moss. One’s first sip is greeted by a flavorful cacophony of black currants, dried blueberries, and Blackstrap molasses with hints of black pepper and toasted coconut emerging on the finish. This full-bodied wine is lush and rich with finely integrated tannins, yet it also shows impeccable balance.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2009 Valley Floor Cabernet.
SOHO’s executive chef, Joe Ahn, has created three tapas plates to pair with each Napa Valley wine.
