This final week of May brings a close to SOHO’s Napa Valley wine feature! We’ve loved spotlighting this amazing wine region, and this week is chock full of great wines and Chef Joey’s tapas. Come see us to enjoy this week’s flights and uncommonly cool weather in Atlanta!
This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday May 24th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through May 30th.
First, SOHO will pour a 2014 Artesa Pinot Noir from Carneros, Napa Valley, and offers the following tasting notes,
“On the nose, this wine offers beautiful, bright aromas of black cherry, plum and a hint of rose petal and violet aromas. On the palate, lush red and blue fruit flavors are accentuated with hints of spice and earth. The natural acidity gives vibrancy and it is an excellent partner to so many foods; it is medium bodied and has a long finish. A classic Pinot Noir that is true to its appellation.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2013 Emblem Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. The wine is described as,
“.. Malolactic fermentation in barrel, combined with 18 months aging in French oak (66% new), further concentrated the wine’s rich cassis and blackberry cobbler flavors, adding subtle nuances of torched crème brûlée.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2014 Round Pond Estate “Kith & Kin” Cabernet Sauvignon. The winemaker says,
“…this wine jumps out of the glass with aromas of candied cherries, cassis and strawberries with vanilla cream. The supple entry opens brightly with intense sweet fresh fruit of blackberry and boysenberry. Softening through the mid-palate, fleshy red fruits of black cherry and rhubarb add a layer of complexity to this classic Napa Valley Cabernet. Notes of toasted nuts and tobacco follow, all with a harmonious mingling of smooth tannins and a lingering finish that will leave you wanting more.”
