We came; we saw; we conquered Sonoma! We have one last week of these gorgeous wines, and we’re doing it up with three perfect reds to make your palate happy! The paired tapas are ridiculously tasty as well, so come hungry!
This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, August 29th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through September 4th.
First, SOHO will pour a Walt La Brisa Pinot Noir 2016 from Sonoma Coast. The winemaker offers,
“Vibrant ruby red in color, La Brisa Pinot Noir opens with hints of earth, crushed rose petals, and red fruits laced with a wild character. Strong flavors of crushed raspberry, cola, freshly turned soil, and tobacco linger on the palate. The texture is rich and leads into a warm finish with balanced oak and fresh minerality.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvée 2016 from Sonoma County. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“Welcoming aromas of cherries, raspberries, warm vanilla, and a little cola lead to a medium bodied wine framed by soft tannins and lively acidity. The silky texture showcases layers of lush cassis and red fruit with savory cocoa powder revealed on the finish. Created for life’s sooner-rather-than-later enjoyments.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a B.R. Cohn Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 from Alexander Valley. Notes on the wine,
“A bold, rich Cabernet with aromas of cassis, black cherry, mint and violet combine with a bouquet of pungent oak, anise and warm vanilla. On the palate, lush cherry, caramel, and clove are wrapped in smooth tannins and a long juicy finish.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
