Oh Napa, we do love you. Find our, (and your) new favorite NAPA wines tonight at Flight Night. Plus, take a look at Chef Joey’s very delicious, creative tapas that Jeffrey has paired the wines with! You’ll be amazed. See you this week in Vinings!
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, May 8th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through May 14th.
First, SOHO will pour Sequoia Grove Chardonnay 2015 from Napa Valley. The winemaker offers,
“The nose pops with an immediate hit of fresh lemon rolling quickly into lemon curd and warm toasted almonds. The fresh fruit nose is balanced nicely with secondary aromas of custard and brioche, ripe melon, pear, and poached pear. On the palate the wine is full of flavor: perfectly nutty toast and marzipan. The mid-palate is creamy with a hint of nutmeg and finishing with fresh citrus.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Elyse Nero Misto 2015 from Napa Valley. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“Like a hippo on a tightrope, the 2015 Nero Misto (Italian for “Mixed Black”) is big, bodacious, and above all, balanced. Dark purple in color with aromas of briar patch, green peppercorns, violets, and earth, this homage to the Cal-Ital blends of early Napa is a serious red wine. On the palate, it offers a lively and focused mouthfeel with mixed berry flavors and an amazing balance of fruit, tannin, and acidity.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Robert Mondavi Cabernet 2016 from Napa Valley. Notes on the wine,
“Our 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers mouth filling, deeply intense blackberry fruit across the palate with clove and cardamom spice complexity and dusty tannins that add structure to the juicy fullness of the fruit.”
