Throughout December, and beginning on Wednesday, December 3, SOHO will feature guest favorite wine and tapas from 2014 on flight night. The wine and tapas introduced Wednesday will be available through Tuesday, December 9.
First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Santa Barbara Winery Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara, California. The wine is described by the winemaker, “This polished Pinot is brimming with acidity. It’s bone dry and has a satiny, silky texture that frames delicate flavors of raspberries, cola and spices.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2008 Rodano Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. from Castellina, Italy. The winemaker says, “The wine has a rich deep cherry, black fruit and fresh berry forward taste with deep wonderful structure and color. Luscious plum, cinnamon, wild strawberries with a ruddy cherry sweetness fill up this extra voluptuous and sultry Chianti Classico. The fruit is well-balanced and made bright by great acidity. Elegant and lengthy in the finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2009 Martinelli “Terra Felice” Syrah from Russian River, California. The winemaker notes, “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 ladden with flavors of raspberry and currents.
SOHO’s executive chef, Scott Warren, has created three tapas plates to pair with each wine.
