beef-1In our quest to bring you unique wines and creative cuisine, the next stop on our journey this month is to pair different beautiful red wines with beef dishes! Take a look at what we’re up to, and make some time to come see us this week!

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, October 10th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through October 16th.

First, SOHO will pour a L’Arco Rosso del Veronese 2015 from Veneto, Italy. The winemaker offers,

“Sangiovese fattens up the wine and makes it both interesting and age worthy. The grape amps up the blend’s flavor profile and brings the addition of dark cherries and a teasing hint of lavender. The finish outperforms for a medium-bodied wine, hanging on amid gripping tannins. Bold fruit, a long finish, Rosso del Veronese is a seductive bottle among Fedrigo’s range.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Leviathan Red Blend 2016 from California. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Lush yet powerful with blackberry, currant, dark chocolate and savory herbs with a dense, velvety finish on the palette.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Beringer Knight’s Valley Cabernet 2015 from Knight’s Valley. Notes on the wine,

“Beringer’s 2015 Cabernet (Knights Valley),one of the estate’s flagships, is deep, plush and enveloping. In 2015, the Knights Valley Cabernet is quite fruity, while the more mineral and savory notes that are so typical of this appellation aren’t really present. It will be interesting to see if the 2015 develops more complexity over time. Black cherry, mocha, lavender and sweet spice build nicely as the wine opens up in the glass.”

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