SOHO Atlanta restaurant will continue to showcase the wines and flavors of Sonoma county on flight night, Wednesday, August 27. The wines and tapas introduced Wednesday will be available through Tuesday, September 2.
First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Hartford Court Russian River Chardonnay. The winemaker describes the wine: “subtle aromas of jasmine flower, citrus oil, ripe apple and pear. The elegant aromatics are complemented by fresh kiwi, lemon drop, and Pippin apple flavors. The fruit focused mid-palate is followed by subtle mineral notes and a hint of crystalized ginger in the finish.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2012 Alexander Valley Vineyards Estate Pinot Noir. The winemaker says: “First produced in 1978, our Estate Pinot Noir has classic style with silky texture. There are aromas of black cherry, strawberry, vanilla, oak, dark fruits and floral stone fruits. Flavors of fresh cherry, red-black fruits, plum and slight pomegranate fill the glass. This wine has good acidity with a structured finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2008 Martinelli “Terra Felice” Syrah. The wine is described: “The ‘Terra Felice’ Syrah is a proprietary blend of some of our best Syrah vineyards. It has aromas of vanilla, sweet tobacco, and bacon, and is laden with flavors of raspberry and currants.”
