First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Domaine Trimbach Pinot Blanc Reserve from Alsace, France. The winemaker offers the following notes: “Pale green. On the nose, delicate honey and spice notes mixed in with green apple and beeswax. Lovely integrated acidity keeps the flavors fresh and clean.

Next, SOHO will pour a 2013 Domaine de Fontsainte Corbèires Rouge from Languedoc-Roussillon, France. The winemaker describes the red blend: “Nose: Immediate and generous. Notes of fresh red fruits, like cherries, and black fruits, like blueberries. Palate: Delicate tannins with a long finish.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2011 Château Haut-Beauséjour Saint-Estèphe from Saint-Estèphe. The winemaker says: “This is a modern, polished wine. Solidly packed with dark tannins and dense fruits. A tough, tannic element shows through strongly, giving counterpoint to the acidity.

SOHO’s executive chef, Scott Warren, and sous chef, Chris Lyons, have created a tapas plate to pair with each wine.
