Who doesn’t love red varietal wines? For an extra special treat this week, SOHO is featuring delicious Malbecs from Southern France and Argentina! These wines are stars in their own right, and our guests are sure to enjoy them all week.
This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday January 11th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through January 17th.
First, SOHO will pour a 2011 Château de Cénac Albatros Malbec, from Southwest France, and offers the following tasting notes,
“Her dress: brilliant dark ruby with purple hues. On the nose: intense fresh fruit with floral notes, currants, and a hint of vanilla and chocolate. Palate: very soft tannins with good length, a big sweetness, a nice balance and a very tasty final on strawberries.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2014 Bodegas Salentein Malbec from Uco Valley, Mendoza. The wine is described as,
“It is notable for its intensity and complexity of its aromas of black berries with notes typical oral Malbec grown in height, breadth and concentration on the palate, with silky tannins, natural acidity and the long-nal that make it a unique wine as the terroir that originated.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2014 Pascal Toso Malbec Reserve from Maipú, Mendoza. The winemaker says,
“This complex yet well balanced wine presents an elegant style with hints of ripe plums and raspberry fruit. Gentle tannins and slightly toasted, spice and chocolate on the palate and a long, lingering focused finish.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef, Jeff Sigler, has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
