First, SOHO will pour a 2013 Rodney Strong Chalk Hill Chardonnay. The winemaker offers the following tasting notes, “In the glass, the wine is both creamy and crisp, with golden delicious yellow apple, baked pie spices and a hint of minerality on the long finish.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2013 Davis Bynum ‘Jane’s Vineyard’ Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. The tasting profile for the wine is as follows, “The 2013 Jane’s Vineyard Pinot Noir has a beautiful ruby red hue with aromas of cherry, cranberry, tea leaves, dusty oak and baking spices. On the palate, the dark cherries, red plums and vanilla characteristics shine through with balance, acidity and a nice lingering finish. Warm, bright and full of flavor, the Jane’s Pinot Noir is a wonderful amalgam of fruit, spice and earth.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Armé Lot #2. The wine is described, “A lush, fruit-powered nose that is fresh, focused and complex. Balances aromas of sage and anise with baked chocolate and blackberry.”

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