Ask us if we felt that we did France justice this month, and you will be met with a resounding “yes!” We came, we drank wine, and we had a really great time munching on the tapas that our amazing chef created to pair with the wine flights!

Sadly, there’s only one week left to enjoy France and all its splendor, but you can bet your bottom dollar we are going to have fun while doing it! If you haven’t stopped by this month, then you’re overdue for a visit…

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday July 26th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through August 1st.


First, SOHO will pour a 2015 Frédéric Esmonin “Les Gen ric Esmonin “Les Genévriéres” Bourgogne from Burgundy, and offers the following tasting notes,

“The Frederic Esmonin “Les Genevrieres” glows light red in the glass, yielding aromas of tart cranberry, ripe strawberry, and hints of brown spices. On the palate, soft cherry fruit eases into fleshed-out raspberry elements. The finish is bright and elongated, tying together a very charming, easy-to-drink Burgundy.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2014 Domaine de la Noblaie Chinon from Loire Valley.  The wine is described as,

“The Chinon rouge from the property is a case study in the balance between power and elegance, spice and softness, and fat and acidity. Jerome’s rouge is produced from a single block called “Les Chiens-Chiens:” 40-80 year old Cabernet Franc vines. This Chinon is lovely and perfumed, with tremendous length in the mouth.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2014 Château Mongravey Margaux from Cru Bourgeois.  The winemaker says,

“Intense deep purple robe. Seductive and intense nose of cassis, raspberries, spices, vanilla and unctuous grilled and toasty aromas. Well structured wine that is at the same time rich and lush in the mouth with smooth tannins and a very long finish.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Joe Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
