First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Milbrandt Columbia Valley Riesling. The winemaker says of the Washington wine, “This wine is bright with a pronounced minerality, reminiscent of wet stone on the mid-palate and a crisp fruit-driven finish.

Next, SOHO will pour a 2009 Van Duzer Estate Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon. International Wine Cellar said of the Pinot, “Musky aromas of raspberry, cola and orange peel.  Focused and linear in the mouth, with a firm acid spine adding structure to the bitter cherry and raspberry flavors.  Finishes with solid grip, dusty tannins and good length.  I’d like a bit more give but some bottle age may loosen things up.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2011 Revelry Cabernet Sauvignon from Columbia Valley, Washington. The wine is described as, “Magnificently layered French oak and spice with deep berry undertones.”

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