Welcome to May in Atlanta! It’s the beginning of our patio season, (yay!) and the month when we get to feature Napa wines for Flight Night! You love Napa, we love Napa, it’s a win-win! We’ve got a few obscure beauties to share with you, and our Chef’s tapas that are To. Die. For! So, if we haven’t seen you in a while, plan to drop by and say hello, and enjoy these fabulous wine and tapas pairings….
This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, May 2nd, and the wines and their tapas will be available through May 8th .
First, SOHO will pour a Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc 2016 from Napa. The winemaker offers,
“The wine is loaded with aromas of Meyer lemon, short bread, honeysuckle, ginger, and tangerine. The full-bodied, coating mouthfeel expands out on the palate with a rich crème brûlée-like texture as unctuous notes of Bosc pear, orange marmalade, and lavender honey coalesce along the long, satisfying finish.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Napa by N.A.P.A. Pinot Noir 2012 from Napa. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“This new release offers Pinot Noir dominated elegant red fruits including raspberry and strawberry, crisp acidity and richness from Pinot Meunier and color, tannin and dark fruit flavors from a touch of Syrah. These Napa Valley varietals were fermented and aged separately in a combination of new French and 2nd vintage French and American oak barrels.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Mira Napa Valley Cabernet 2013 from Napa Valley. Notes on the wine,
“Blackberry and blueberry dominate the aromas with more complex cranberry, cinnamon, current and pipe tobacco coming through.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
