SOHO Atlanta Restaurant will feature the wines and flavors of Oregon on flight night, Wednesday, August 28. The wines and tapas introduced Wednesday will be available through Tuesday, September 3.
First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Adelsheim Chardonnay from Willamette Valley, Oregon. The winemaker says of the wine: ”This Chardonnay features intense fruit character and a luscious texture. It offers fresh, crisp flavors of pear, white peach, star fruit and kiwi.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2011 Elk Cove Pinot from Willamette Valley, Oregon. The winemaker describes the wine as featuring “Aromas and flavors of blackberry, cherry compote and spices, with hints of wood smoke and mocha. [It is] supple, broad and open-knit.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2010 Erath Estate Selection Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon. The winemaker describes the Pinot Noir: “An inviting nose of warm blackberries laced with vanilla, baking spice and root beer engages the senses, leading to a plush mouthful of boysenberry, plum, graham and nougat. Smooth and seamless, each sip is a silky ribbon, woven together with refined tannins and judicious acidity .”
