First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Michael David Petite Petit from Lodi. The wine is described, “Offering a joyous explosion of color and fun, it is a substantial, dense, full-bodied,whopper style of wine loaded with pure black fruit and vanilla flavors that coat the palate. It reveals remarkable richness with a finish that is slightly dry and seems to linger.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2013 Blue Rock ‘Baby Blue‘ Bordeaux Blend. Noted wine reviewer Robert Parker said of the wine, “The innovative blend called Baby Blue, has a floral nose of red and black currants as well as spice box. Its seductive aromatics are followed by a silky textured, medium to full-bodied wine with loads of personality and soul.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2012 Mettler ‘Epicenter’ Zinfandel from Lodi. The winemaker notes, “deep, opaque garnet color. Enticing aromas of dried red currant, brambly blackberry and vanilla delight the senses. An impressive concentration of flavors offer waves of sweet raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry pie, enriched by notes of sweet tobacco, pepper and hints of cola. Silky, plush tannins float through the lingering finish, balanced by light touch of acidity. This wine has the elegance and balance of a fine Cabernet, yet retains the juicy, exuberant personality that is uniquely Zinfandel.”

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