Is it too early to ring the bell for Flight Night? 🔔🍷 We are almost ready to kick of this Wednesday evening with our fabulous wines & tapas pairings from California. We’re excited to get started, and we’ll see you soon in Vinings!
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, August 21st, and the wines and their tapas will be available through August 27th.
First, SOHO will pour a Luna Reserve Chardonnay 2017 from Napa Valley. The winemaker offers,
“Lemon and honey on the nose; tangerine, green apple, creamy toasted almond, and citrus on the palate.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Roth Red Blend 2016 from Alexander Valley. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“Our 2016 Reserve Red wine is a classic Bordeaux blend with inviting aromas of black plum, blackberry, cedar and baking spices. Bright red fruits, minerality and vanilla bean complement the well-integrated tannins. Juicy raspberry and earthy notes provide depth and detail for a lingering finish. While approachable now, it will benefit from a few years in the cellar.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 from Sonoma. Notes on the wine,
“The 2016 Sonoma is all about big fruit, offering layered aromas of black cherry and woodland berries. Ripe fruit character carries through on the palate along with undertones of caramel and cedar. Bright and juicy, with a plush and velvety texture, this wine is readily enjoyable on its own and versatile enough to be paired with anything from casual pub fare to a classic ribeye.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
