Life is a lot more fun when you have something to look forward to, and we think Flight Night is just the ticket! Both of our regular and new guests love our flights on Wednesday nights, and everyone has a particular variety of wine they favor. This week we feature the hugely popular Rhone Blends, and all three wines are stars in their own right! Get ready to fall in love with wine all over again, and let’s get this Flight Night started!
This week begins on Wednesday January 25th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through January 31st.
First, SOHO will pour a 2012 Terre Rouge “Les Cotes de l’Ouest, from Columbia Valley, and offers the following tasting notes,
“This 2012 vintage has beautiful color with rich, silky, wild raspberry fruit flavors laced with pepper, tar, and olive/herb tones. Aromas are raspberry, smoky, wild gamey, peppery, and cinnamon. The wine has a clean purity of Syrah fruit that is reminiscent of many St. Joseph’s and other Northern Rhone’s. It has forward fruit flavors and great acid balance.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2014 Halter Ranch CDP from Paso Robles. The wine is described as,
“Our Côtes de Paso is our Rhone style blend that is a combination of four varietals from our estate vineyard. Grenache provides a bright fruit forward entry. Mourvedre adds spice and meaty notes, while Syrah brings weight to the mid-palate, and Tannat ties everything together with color, tannin and acidity. Loaded with aromas of plum and dark cherry with a hint of garrique, this luscious wine has a rich mid-palate that leads to a long smooth finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2014 Saint Cosme Cotes du Rhone from Rhone Valley, France. The winemaker says,
“The Château de St. Cosme Côtes du Rhône Red is a deep plum with violet reflections. Aromas of bright berry fruits and licorice give way to a medium bod-
ied palate with elegant flavors of red currant and gingerbread.”
