Adios May! Anyone else think that this month went WAY too quickly? Fortunately, we have five weeks in May to feature our Napa wines for Flight Night, so you get an extra serving of all those good California grapes! In true SOHO fashion, we have saved three outstanding reds to finish out the month. See you next year, Napa!
This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, May 30th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through June 5th.
First, SOHO will pour a Conn Creek Herrick Red 2013 from Napa Valley. The winemaker offers,
“Bold red and black berries cradle vanilla and floral accents. The berries unfold on the palate into notes of tapenade and espresso powder, finishing with boisterous tannins.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Flora Springs Merlot 2013 from Napa. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“The 2014 vintage unfolds with inviting aromas of dark plum and black cherry and hints of cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon spice. In the mouth the deep purple fruit flavors unfurl on a richly textured palate, joined by notes of sassafras, baked pie crust and dusty cocoa. A judicious touch of oak adds a toasty vanilla accent to the wine, and its long finish carries a tinge of sweet tobacco and dark chocolate.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Trefethen Oak Knoll Cabernet 2015 from Napa. Notes on the wine,
“Deep ruby in color, this exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon opens with fragrant notes of blackberry, bay leaf, coffee and chocolate. The palate is supported by velvety tannins and features flavors that tend more towards red cherries and baking spices.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
