First, SOHO will pour 2012 Antica Napa Valley Chardonnay. The winemaker says, “The 2012 Chardonnay is pure, ripe, and richly flavored, yet fine and delicate. There are lots of distinctive peach, nectarine, and pear notes, finishing with subtle hints of vanilla and toast flavors. The finish on the wine is mouthwatering and gains depth with its long persistence on the palate.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2013 B Side Red Blend. Of the wine, the winemaker notes, “Fragrant aromas of cranberry cocktail, rich cherry and Tahitian vanilla are accompanied by hints of fresh oregano, purple basil and framed by toasty French oak nuances. Vibrant avors of blackberry compote, sweetened dried cherry and cappuccino are complemented by notes of black currant and sandalwood. This Bordeaux style blend is framed well by moderate acidity and rich, mouth lling tannins that will soften with age.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2012 St Supery Cabernet Sauvignon. The winemaker describes the wine, “Rich, vibrant purple and red hues present in this wine. Blackberry and ripe currant aromas combine with black pepper,anise, toasted oak and smoky roasted mocha. Flavors of black plum and cassis complement flavors of roasted coffee bean and licorice. This is a structured Cabernet Sauvignon with fine texture, length, flavor and style.”

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