Ready, set, GO for S. American Flight Night! Three of our favorite wines are in the spotlight this week, with their yummy latin-inspired tapas pairings. It’s a beautiful week in Atlanta, and we’re excited to see everyone who comes by to see us!
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, June 19th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through June 25th.
First, SOHO will pour a Cuvelier Los Andes Rose 2018 from Uco Valley, Mendoza. The winemaker offers,
“Appearance: beautiful pale salmon color with pink hues. Very attractive. Aroma: intense with notes of citrus, flowers and fresh fruit such as apricots. Mouth: fresh, juicy, crisp and easy to drink. Very good.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Montes Twins Red Blend 2016 from Colchagua Valley, Chile. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“It is a perfumed wine, with elegant aromas of ripe black fruit recalling fig and blackcurrant, typical of the Cabernet Sauvignon from this area. The Syrah makes its presence felt with delicate aromas of sweet spices and leather that heighten the character. Fresh and juicy on the palate, due in no small part to the percentage of Tempranillo in the blend. The Carmenère lends smooth, round tannins for a light sweet sensation that lingers on its pleasing finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Odfjell Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 from Cauquenes, Maule Valley. Notes on the wine,
“Bright ruby red in color with pleasing aromas of black fruits such as blueberries, plums, and cherries as well as licorice. Velvety and persistent on the palate with a long, lingering finish.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
