Are you enjoying our culinary tutorial on food and wine this month? That’s great, because next up is chicken, and we’ve definitely got some surprises on the Flight Night menu! Be sure to tell us your favorite tapa and wine pairing this week!

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, October 17th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through October 23rd.

October Week 3-page-001

First, SOHO will pour a Four Vines “The Biker” from Paso Robles. The winemaker offers,

“Dark berry and spicy notes aromas lead to a palate rich with jammy, ripe plum and blackberry flavors bolstered by a touch of black pepper and sweet, toasted oak. The 2016 offers a plush mouthfeel and a long, velvety finish.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Hyland Estate Pinot Noir 2015 from McMinnville, OR. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Nose: Flint, Marion Berry, Cherry, Sweet and Delicate, Ocean breeze. Mouth: Coffee, leather, poignant tannins, dry forest floor, plum.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Marietta Cellars “Armé” Cabernet 2015 from Sonoma County. Notes on the wine,

“The 2015 Armé, Marietta’s Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend, is fabulous, not to mention a tremendous value. Grilled herbs, plums, blueberry jam, spice, mint and leath-er give the 2015 its nuance and complexity. Supple and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2015 hits all the right notes. What a gorgeous wine this is.”

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