May is such a beautiful time of year in Atlanta; everyone sits outside on patios because the weather is nice, and not terribly hot (yet). It’s a great time to be catching up with friends and family, sharing wine and stories, and planning for Summer!
At SOHO, we capture some of that comeraderie by celebrating the spirit of different global wine regions, and we are having SUCH a great time celebrating Napa Valley! Come see us, get a glass of wine, and sit for a spell. You won’t regret it!
This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday May 17th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through May 23rd.
First, SOHO will pour a 2015 Ramspeck Pinot Noir from Carneros, Napa Valley, and offers the following tasting notes,
“Aromas of intense candied berry fruits -a medley of luscious ripe strawberries and black berries with spice and earth tones. A silky mouth-feel follows the delicious cherry/raspberry flavors and the finish is generous. This is classic Burgundian in style.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2014 Tamber Bey Cabernet Sauvignon from Yountville, Napa Valley. The wine is described as,
“Deep cassis and black cherry dominate the nose, with secondary aromas of crushed stones and light blond tobacco. A sweet burst of black fruit introduces the mouth, followed by notes of blackberry sauce and cassis, with a touch of sweet vanilla. The finish delivers dark stone fruit, with an earthy note and a hint of coffee bean.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2011 Worthy Sophia’s Cuvee Cabernet. The winemaker says,
“… aromas of red currants and blackberries deepened by notes of violets, loose tobacco, forest floor and raw cedar. The seamless palate of wild cherries, raspberries and black currants unveils a spicy layer of Bay leaf, cinnamon, anise and mint that give lift to an elegantly balanced finish of subtle, fine-grained tannins that are enlivened by refreshing acidity.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
