First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Dry Creek Fume Blanc. The winemaker says of the wine: “Meyer lemon, kaffir lime, citrus, and grassy characters arise from the glass. The palate repeats many of the aromatic themes making the wine fresh and vibrant. Classic underlying minerality provides a seamless core of acidity and backbone that are hallmarks of our Fumé Blanc.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2010 Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee. The winemaker describes the blend: “A serious yet easy-drinking red blend, loaded with lush black plum, blackberry, and milk chocolate flavors, with accents of black spice and fresh tobacco. Juicy, creamy and round mouthfeel with soft tannins supporting generous fruit. The long finish is full of dense berry and cocoa.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2010 Sebastiani Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is described as follows: “The dark garnet color is a prologue to the procession of blackberry and black cherries in both the bouquet and palate.The oak is in the background, which allows the elegance and character of the region to shine through. The palate delivers gobs of lush, concentrated blackberry and vanilla flavors framed by moderate tannins.”

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