As we finish out the month of October, SOHO continues to feature the amazing New World wines from the Pacific Northwest! Join us in celebrating these unique wines with our delicious paired tapas from Chef Jeff Sigler. This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday October 26th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through November 1st .
First, SOHO will pour a 2014 Beaux Freres “Les Cousins” from Willamette Valley. The winemaker offers the following tasting notes,
“A bit darker, Medium ruby to red. The nose is of fresh red Oregon fruits & berries, a cherry aromatic is supported by more cola spice and a touch of subtle oak. This is a finesse styled Beaux Freres. Medium bodied with light-sweet tannins, very good purity and depth. The texture here is beguiling as well.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2013 Amavi Cellars Syrah from Walla Walla Valley. The wine is described as,
“Smells like: blueberry, blackberry, dusty leather, cracked black pepper. Tastes like: raspberry, black currant, olive tapenade. Mouth feel: elegant acidity, complex tannin, lengthy finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2014 Andrew Will Cabernet Sauvignon from Columbia Valley. The winemaker says,
“This 2014 wine is medium to full bodied. It has a remarkable depth of flavors. It is fresh on the palate and has an alluring nose of violets and pencil shavings. Champoux Vineyards is the source for this wine. This is sensational fruit.”
