SOHO Atlanta restaurant will continue to showcase the wines and tapas of Napa Valley on flight night, Wednesday, May 13. The wines and tapas introduced Wednesday will be available through Tuesday, May 19.

First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Stags Leap “Hands of Time” Chardonnay. The winemaker describes the wine, “Created for restaurants only, this rare offering commemorates the winemakers and viticulturalists responsible for Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars impressive history. Spiced apple and vanilla aromas that meet citrus zest on the palate – it’s another for the history books.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2012 Elizabeth Rose Yountville Pinot Noir. Of the wine the winemaker notes, “The Pinot Noir goes straight to barrel after press, giving the wine a slight wisp of smoke from the oak influence. Also present are pretty raspberry and strawberry aromas with generous flavors of cherry and plum. Light in color but bright in flavor and most importantly is easy to drink now.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2012 Cultivar Cabernet Sauvignon. The winemaker states, “Our 2012 Napa Cabernet strikes that wonderful balance of intense, dark fruit with sweet tannins and refined structure. A touch of new oak comes through on the nose with hints of vanilla, violets and warm spices. The wine is dark and rich with ripe blackcurrant, plum and dark cherry flavors, complemented by an elegant finish that will leave you wanting more.”

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