Do you like Sonoma wines as much as we do? Great minds drink alike! The middle of August brings sweltering temps in Atlanta, but great wines to SOHO in Vinings, so enjoy a respite from the heat with us!

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, August 22nd, and the wines and their tapas will be available through August 28th.


First, SOHO will pour a L’Oliveto Pinot Noir 2014 from Russian River Valley. The winemaker offers,

“The 2014 L’Oliveto Pinot Noir is deep garnet in color, the nose is full of loamy earth, rhubarb, cardamom and cocoa. The palate shows excellent weight with a core of red fruit enveloped in gamey earthiness that finishes with mouth watering dark berry notes.

Next, SOHO will pour a Sivas-Sonoma Zinfandel 2014 from Sonoma County. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Our 2014 Sivas-Sonoma Old Vine Zinfandel offers aromas of black and rainbow peppercorns, coriander, over ripe raspberry and pomegranate jam. On the palate, this full-bodied wine features black cherry, black pepper and fruity baking cocoa and bittersweet chocolate. Our Zinfandel has a rich, juicy mouthfeel, long-lasting finish and is a perfect expression of an assertive but elegant wine.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Roth Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 from  Alexander Valley. Notes on the wine,

“Our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark in color with complex aromas of black cherry, cassis, and dark chocolate. Rich and smooth on the palate, this Cabernet displays layered flavors of cherry, baking spices, black pepper, and sweet oak with a hint of chocolate. Supple tannins in this full-bodied Cabernet are beautifully accented by a balanced acidity that sets the stage for the bold, lengthy finish.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
