Chardonnay. Petit Syrah. Cabernet. Three classic varieties that you can’t go wrong with when you’re drinking California wines! Not only did we pick exceptional vineyards, but their tapas that Chef Joey prepared to match are stand-alone amazing, but the whole experience combined is extraordinary. It *kinda* feels like Spring in Atlanta, so let’s celebrate and raise our glasses to warmer weather!
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, March 13th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through March 19th.
First, SOHO will pour a Mount Eden Chardonnay 2015 from Edna Valley. The winemaker offers,
“Hints of cardamom, anise and hazelnut add interest to the core lemon, mineral flavors. Of all Mount Eden’s estate-grown wines, the Chardonnay is most in need of further bottle aging at release, requiring an additional two to four years to fully reveal its true character. Many vintages are still fresh and enjoyable after fifteen years, explaining why Mount Eden Estate Chardonnay is considered one of California’s longest-lived white wines.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Brady Petit Sirah 2016 from Paso Robles. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“The Brady Vineyard Petite Sirah is rich and luxurious, featuring deep crimson color and aromas reminiscent of blackberry, and black pepper with subtle notes of roasted vanilla and spice. On tasting, it shows opulent texture and savory berry and bramble flavors that echo the aromas. The wine is luscious, full-bodied with balancing gentle acidity and just a hint of velvety oak that lengthens the finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Aerena Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 from Red Hill, Lake County. Notes on the wine,
“Not afraid to show its true cabernet core, the 2016 ÆRENA Cabernet is uplifting with fruit and floral components coming together in perfect balance. Soft and supple tannins offer great approachability.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
