For the month of July, SOHO will celebrate the lovely and diverse wines of France for its Flight Nights! The week begins on Wednesday, July 6th, and the wine and tapas introduced Wednesday will be available through Tuesday, July 12th!
First, SOHO will pour a 2015 Joseph Cattin Riesling from Alsace. The winemaker offers the following tasting notes,
“Appearance: bright and pale yellow with green reflects. Nose: mineral with citrus flowers. Palate: fresh, dry and mineral, with grapefruit flavors.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2014 Domaine de la Noblaie “Chiens- Chiens” from the Loire Valley. The wine is described,
“The Chinon rouge from the property is a case study in the balance between power and elegance, spice and softness, and fat and acidity. Jerome’s rouge is produced from a single block called “Les Chiens-Chiens:” 40-80 year old Cabernet Franc vines. This Chinon is lovely and perfumed, with tremendous length in the mouth.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2011 Chateau Cap L’Ousteau from Haut Medoc. The winemaker says,
“This Château Cap l’ Ousteau 2012 has a very intense and brilliant red garnet color. The nose, complex, persistant and spicy delivers cherry, black current and vanilla aromas. On the palate, the attack is supple and followed by a well balanced mouth with prune and redfruit jam notes. The finish is long.”
SOHO’s executive chef, Jeff Sigler, has created a tapas plate to be paired with each wine.
