The Pacific Northwest produces some of the best New World wines, and SOHO is eager to feature them in October!  This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday October 5th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through Tuesday, October 11th!


First, SOHO will pour a 2013 Van Duzer Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley.  The winemaker offers the following tasting notes,

“This wine represents the core of our production. Aromas of Bing cherries, wild strawberries and layers of stewed plums harmonize with white peppercorn, bourbon, vanilla and hints of roasted almonds. Floral notes of lilac and rose petals compliment the subtle fragrance of butterscotch. A savory attack leads into a bright, acid-driven mid palate.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2013 Three Rivers Winery Red Blend from Piedmont.  The wine is described as,

“.. The dominance of Sangiovese creates structure and complexity, while the Malbec, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon provide balance to the wine and add savory notes to this blend. This medium bodied wine is filled with aromas and flavors of strawberry, cherry, raspberry, and finishes with a touch of cedar.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2013 Mercer Estate Cabernet from Horse Heaven Hills. The winemaker says,

“Aromas of blueberry, dark plum, and blackberry jam are elevated with hints of tobacco, caramel, and sweet vanilla.  The lush fruit continues in the palate with a nice lift of mint. The well integrated oak and sleek tannins lead into a velvety finish with a nice touch of acidity on the end. This wine is a lovely balance of power and grace.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef, Jeff Sigler, has created tapas plates for each of the wines!
