Cabernet…you know you love it! Sometimes there’s nothing better than a big, satisfying glass of Cab to warm you up on a cold winter’s day. The good news? SOHO has three pleasing Cabs for you this week, perfectly paired with Chef Joey’s hearty tapas. It may be cold and dreary outside, but we’ll make sure you’re warm and cozy (with a full belly) when you come see us!
This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday January 31st, and the wines and their tapas will be available through February 6th.
First, SOHO will pour a Treana Red 2014 from Paso Robles, and offers the following tasting notes,
“The 2014 Treana Red has an opaque, inky-black color with a ruby-black rim. Bold fruit aromas of dried black currant, blackberry pie filling and pomegranate combine with lavender, menthol and leather. Undertones of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, sweet cinnamon and a hint of smoke add to the complexity of this blend.”
“Aromas of black cherry and ripe plum mesh with blackberry spice and violets. Flavors explode on the palate, with velvety tannins and elegant acidity seamlessly integrated into the finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Quilt Napa Valley Cabernet 2015 from Napa Valley. The winemaker says,
“COLOR: Dark red with purple hues. AROMAS: A seamless blend of crème de cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves, charred meat, and blackberry pie along with hints of dark licorice, stewed rhubarb, strawberry, spice and vanillin. PALATE: Rich and satisfying with dark chocolate, yogurt, molasses, brown sugar and rhubarb notes presented in perfect balance with higher toned fruit emphasis.”
