Two weeks to the end of the year. Yikes! While time is certainly flying, we are enjoying revisiting the guest favorites of 2017. It’s fun to look back on the year and reflect how lucky we are to live in such a great city, with cherished family, friends, and guests that we have the pleasure of seeing on a regular basis. We are looking forward to an even better 2018!
These wines and tapas were the most popular this year, so enjoy their encore. This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday December 13th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through December 19th.
First, SOHO will pour a 2013 Piazzo Barbaresco DOCG from Piedmont, Italy, and offers the following tasting notes,
“Color: Deep garnet red with a slight orange hue. Bouquet: An aristocratic nose of red fruit jam, withered violets and geraniums, with hints of cinnamon and green pepper. Taste: A warm, dry, and full-bodied palate packed with structure; a long aromatic finish.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2015 K Milbrandt Syrah from Wahluke Slope. The wine is described as,
“Shimmering, this wine is alive with energy. Vibrant aromatics, red and black fruits and heaps of minerality on a long focused finish. Great today, great in ten years, the Great Milbrandt!”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2015 Trig Point Cab Sauv Diamond Dust Vineyard from Alexander Valley. The winemaker says,
“Aromas of blackberry, black cherry, spice and licorice. Black currant and cherry flavors are accented with sage and dark chocolate. Full-bodied on the palate, this vintage shows subtle espresso bean and mocha notes in a soft, supple finish.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zalinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
