Happy New Year! Just for something a little different this week, we’ve decided to feature three different glorious types of Malbec. Since it’s pretty cold and gloomy in Atlanta, these red wines from South American and France will cheer you up! (Honestly, it’s hard to be grouchy when you’re enjoying good wine, no?) So kick off your new year with us and plan to come by to experience our Flight Nights on Wednesdays, or the flights and tapas themselves the rest of the week.  Let’s make 2019 the year of good food, wine, and people!

This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, January 9th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through January 15th.

First, SOHO will pour a Finca Decero Malbec 2016 from Mendoza, Argentina.  The winemaker offers,

“2016 Decero Malbec continues with the style that characterizes our Remolinos Vineyard, displaying intense violet aromas over a core of red fruits with notes of cherries and raspberries. A medium-bodied, very well balanced wine with fresh acidity.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Dona Paula Malbec 2017 from Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Deep violet red color. Intense, spicy, sweet aromas, with notes of red fruit and floral hints such as violets. In the mouth, it is soft, velvety, fresh, and well balanced.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Chateau Du Cedre Cahors 2014 from Cahors, France. Notes on the wine,

“This wine has sworn eternal fidelity and it sticks to it! Each year, it presents itself with a friendly handshake and a few attentive words. After that, it can’t wait to show off the full range of its ripe and juicy fruits, spices and herbs accompanied by precise tannins, refreshing acidity and a little sweetness.”

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