SOHO Atlanta restaurant will continue to showcase the wines and flavors of Napa Valley, California, on flight night, Wednesday, May 28. The wines and tapas introduced Wednesday will be available through Tuesday, June 3.
First, SOHO will pour a 2010 Silverado Chardonnay. The winemaker describes the wine, “Aromas of fresh white pearmain apple, citrus, honeysuckle with a light layer of toasty oak that adds complexity without diminishing the upfront fruit. On the palate, a medium body with fresh fruit flavors on entry, finishes with a marmalade essence.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2012 Charles Krug Pinot Noir. Of the Pinot Noir, the winemaker says, “This elegant and fruitful Pinot Noir has a beautiful dark cherry color with aromas of blackberry, black cherry and boysenberry. With the first sip, this graceful and balanced wine combines subtle pomegranate, brown sugar and blackberry infused tea flavors for a smooth and juicy finish that is a true palate pleaser.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2011 Emblem Cabernet Sauvignon. Says the winemaker, “The Emblem Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford is rich, sophisticated and earthy, with concentrated dark berry and cassis aromas, beautifully balanced flavors of dried fruit and currants, and ripe, evolved tannins expressive of Rutherford dust. Its long, smooth finish marries rich fruit with savory, toasted oak tones.”
