As we finish out August in Atlanta, SOHO celebrates the intriguing wines of Sonoma for our Flight Nights! This week begins on Wednesday August 24th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through Tuesday, August 30th!
First, SOHO will pour a 2014 MacRostie Chardonnay from Sonoma County. The winemaker offers the following tasting notes,
“The wine is pale straw gold in color. Lemon peel, green melon rind and young pineapple aromas introduce this wine to the nose. The palate follows, soft and smooth, with just a touch of lemon pith structure. There is pronounced weight in the mid palate with a unique mineral personality that will leave you thinking of a fresh lemon infused olive oil.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2012 Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma Coast. The wine is described as,
“Our 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is intense with aromas of dark cherry and red plum. Notes of violet and blueberry jam come through on the mid palate along with nuanced spice and licorice. The concentrated mouth feel and soft tannins are a testament to this great vintage, coating the palate with a lingering red fruit finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2013 Rodney Strong Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Knights Valley . The winemaker says,
“This deeply colored Cabernet is bursting with aromas of spicy dark plum and crushed blackberries with a hint of blueberry. The complex layers of spice and chocolate on the palate are framed in rich, velvety tannins with a long lingering finish.”
