First, SOHO will pour a 2011 Byron Santa Maria Chardonnay from Santa Maria. The wine is described, “Our 2011 Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay displays fruit-forward citrus aromas, accented by hints of mineral and brown spice. On the palate, it is richly textured with stone fruit, fig, honey, spice and minerals.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2012 Morgan Cotes du Crow’s from Monterey. The winemaker notes, “This Rhone-style blend has a rich ruby red color, highlighted with purple edges. Cherry pie, sweet spice and floral aromas jump out of the glass. The wine is medium-bodied with soft tannins; it offers a mouthful of blackberry, plum and coffee cake.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2013 Daou Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles. Of the wine, the winemaker says, “Rich deep dark berry color with creamy mocha- espresso flavors is the first impression of this wine. The tannins are well integrated with the fruit and create a long finish that keeps going. It’s full bodied with a saturated finish while accompanied by bright acidity and infused by black current and cooked blueberries fruit. Balanced and intense.”

SOHO’s executive chef, Scott Warren, has created a tapas plate to pair with each California wine.
