First, SOHO will pour a 2013 Decoy Chardonnay by Duckham from Chalk Hill, Sonoma County, California. The wine is described: “This vibrant Chardonnay offers enticing aromas of lemon meringue, honeysuckle and vanilla cream. On the palate, bright citrus flavors dominate with hints of rich tropical fruit contributing weight and texture. Excellent acidity adds length and focus to a crisp, lingering finish.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2009 Selby Sonoma Coast Syrah from the Sonoma Coast. According to the winemaker, “This rich, dark and deep wine enjoyed 20 months of barrel aging  to soften the tannins and extract as much fruit and spice as possible. Flavors of cassis, plum and black cherry are combined with spicy overtones of nutmeg, clove and tobacco.

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2012 Trig Point Diamond Dust Cabernet Sauvignon from the Alexander Valley. The winemaker notes the Cabernet is a “Bright, deep garnet. [The wine] offers and impressive mix of red cherry, blackberry, and espresso notes fanning out to dried herb and tobacco accents. The mid-palate is soft and expansive with roasted coffee and ripe blackberry flavors. Finishes with soft, supple tannins.”

SOHO’s executive chef, Scott Warren, has created three tapas plates to pair with each Sonoma wine.
