Happy new year!  Cheers to new beginnings and a prosperous and healthy 2017!  For the very first Flight Night of this new year, we celebrate delicious red varietals, specifically Pinot Noirs!   This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday January 4th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through January 10th.


First, SOHO will pour a 2015 Patricia Green Estate Pinot Noir, from Willamette Valley, and offers the following tasting notes,

“This wine has incredible pure, fruit driven and penetrating aromatics. The fruit is sweet in nature but savory in character and underlayed by a pure beam of acidity that keeps the wine in balance.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2014 Belle Glos Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir from Santa Maria Valley.  The wine is described as,

“Deep scarlet-red with lush aromas of blackberry bramble, nutmeg and a hint of caramel. The wine is fresh and exuberant in the mouth with sumptuous strawberry jam, ripe black cherry, cranberry and warm gingerbread. Perfectly balanced with refreshing acidity, this wine delivers velvety tannins and a hint of toffee that carries through its long finish.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2014 Luli Pinot Noir from Santa Lucia Highlands.  The winemaker says,

“The 2014 Luli Pinot Noir is bright and pure, with predominately red fruits and spice. Pomegranate, bing cherry, raspberry and earl grey tea evolve from the wine.  The palate is broad and structured with climate regions as the Santa Lucia Highlands.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef, Jeff Sigler, has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
