SOHO Atlanta Restaurant will continue to showcase red varietals on flight night, Wednesday, January 21. Malbec will be the featured varietal of the week. The wine and tapas introduced Wednesday will be available through Tuesday, January 27.
First, SOHO will pour a 2011 Antigal UNO Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina. The winemaker says of the wine, “Bright natural acidity heightens irresistible plum and Morello cherry, while a touch of vanilla, chocolate and dulce de leche adds complexity.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2010 Waterbrook Reserve Malbec from Columbia Valley, Washington. The wine is described, “Wonderfully developed cherry aromas swirl in the glass. Juicy, dark flavors welcome you to the well-rounded palate. Layered notes of rich fruit, cocoa powder and leather lead to balanced tannins and lingering oak on the finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2013 Felino Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina. Wine critic James Suckling says of the wine, “Extremely dark fruit on the nose with blackberries and wet earth. Full body, with a solid core of fruit and mineral, blue slate and blueberry aftertaste. Black pepper and spice finish.”
SOHO’s executive chef, Scott Warren, has created a tapas plate to be paired with each Malbec.
