So we find ourselves in the last week of March, and the last week of featuring our California wines and tapas pairings for Flight Nights. It was quick, and fun, and aren’t those the best types of experiences? We certainly hope that you enjoyed yourself as much as we did, and that you’ll come see us for the last set of Cali wine tastings before next Wednesday rolls around!
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, March 27th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through April 2nd.
First, SOHO will pour a Marietta Cellars “Christo” 2015 from North Coast, California. The winemaker offers,
“Beautiful blackberry fruit, peppery herbs, underbrush, and a hint of olive all give way to a medium to full bodied, plump, textured beauty that shines for its charm, texture, and pleasure-bent style.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Jackson Estate Pinot Noir 2016 from Anderson Valley. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“The wine shows its cool-climate origins in bright acidity, accenting the rich flavors of
blueberries, black cherries, cola and dusty spices. Firm minerality grounds the wine.
The tannins are powerful, yet with silkiness on the finish, while oak barrel aging brings
a smoky, sandalwood note. Beautiful to drink now on release, this Pinot will age well over the next six-plus years easily.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Marietta Cellars “Arme” Cabernet ‘15 from the North Coast. 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 leather give the 2015 its nuance and complexity.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
