La Chaize
Chateau De La Chaize

First, SOHO will pour a 2010 Marimar Estate“Acero” Don Miguel Vineyard Chardonnay from Russian River, California. The winemaker describes the wine: ”Attractive bright fruit, fresh and lively, with notes of lemon cream, white peach and ginger. Crisp and vibrant in the mid palate, it shows great balance, full flavors and a dry, long finish.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2009 Chateau De La Chaize Brouilly from Beaujolais, France. The wine is described as: “Light ruby with purple tones, with aromas of fresh strawberries and raspberries. The palate has silky red fruits balanced by lively acidity.

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2007 Clarendelle Rouge from Bordeaux, France. The winemaker says the wine is “dark, attractive, brilliant garnet red color. It starts off very fresh on the palate, with delicious blackcurrant and blackberry flavors. The taste profile is beautifully soft and subtle, with smooth tannins.”

SOHO’s executive chef Joe Ahn has created three tapas plates to pair with each wine.
