First, SOHO will pour a 2014 Au Contraire Pinot Gris from Sonoma County. The winemaker offers the following tasting notes,

“ Color: Medium lemon. Aroma: Layers of floral notes are accented by intense and fresh citrus fruit and a hint of spice. Taste: Crisp acidity and a clean, refreshing mouthfeel.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2013 Sean Minor Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast. The wine is described as,

“Our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is medium-bodied with rich aromas of plum, cherry, green tea and a slight clove spice. On entry, the wine has a lean entry with rich and sweet cherry and plum flavors framed by vanilla and oak notes throughout the mid-palate. The spicy finish lingers on the palate.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2012 Fortress Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County . The winemaker says,

“Fortress delivers aromas of dark fruit, mocha and baking spices on the nose. The palate exhibits well integrated tannins that complement the subtle earthy flavors of pomegranate, blackberry and sweet pipe tobacco. With a rich, opulent mouth feel, Fortress is an approachable wine with a silky, lush finish.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef, Jeff Sigler, has created a tapa plate to be paired with each wine!
