This day, September 11th, is always a little different; a little harder than the rest of the year. We will enjoy Flight Night as always, but today we raise a glass to all those affected on 9/11, and the strength and commonality that makes us Americans. Let’s sip some wine, reflect, and be kind to ourselves and others!
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, September 11th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through September 17th.
First, SOHO will pour a Eyrie Vineyard Rose of Pinot 2018 from Willamette Valley. The winemaker offers,
“Not just another fruit bomb, the aromatics of this wine create an aromatic spectrum ranging from bright strawberries and pink grapefruit, to fresh turned loam and savory herbs. The palate is long and precise with a round, silky texture. The evolving finish compliments and echoes the primary fruit of the palate.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Angela Estate Pinot Noir 2014 from Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“This vintage was drier and warmer than usual, resulting in large, ripe clusters and a lot of it. Yields were almost double in some cases, resulting in four to fve tons per acre! Harvest officially began in early September, nearly three weeks earlier than previous vintages with low bird effects and disease pressure. Pinots from 2014 will display pronounced aromas, deep color, ripe developed favors, with alcohols ranging from 13 – 14%.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Del Rio Claret 2015 from Rogue Valley, Oregon. Notes on the wine,
“Complex and rich, with deep flavors of red raspberry and ripe strawberry flavors, with herbal elements of thyme and rosemary. Framed with toasty oak notes and balanced tannins that provide structure for this rich and elegant blend. Intricately designed for enjoyment now or to be cellared for aging.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
