Welcome to Fall Flight Nights! 🍂🍷 Come out and see us in this beautiful cool weather for some fantastically fun chicken tapas paired with red wines! It’s an unexpectedly perfect marriage of tapas and wine, and we can’t wait to see what you think!
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, October 16, and the wines and their tapas will be available through October 22nd.
First, SOHO will pour a CVNE Rioja Reserva 2014 from Rioja, Spain. The winemaker offers,
“Medium intensity ruby in colour with a pink hint at the rim. The nose shows good aromatic intensity with aromas of fresh wild berries and liquorice which are typical of wines made from Tempranillo grapes. These are well integrated with the sweet spice aromas from the barrel ageing process. The palate is soft and marked by silky tannins and a long, fruity and youthful finish.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Nicolas Potel Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2017 from Burgundy, FR. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“Ruby and medium dark in color. This wine has a bouquet of red cherries, fern, white flowers and spices. On the palate fine toasted notes with honey give way to long lasting notes of black fruits. The tannins are silky and well balanced. The finish is beautiful and full.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Concha Toro Cabernet 2017 from California. Notes on the wine,
“A taut, muscular red, with forest floor notes to the luscious dried berry and cherry tart flavors, accented by olive and tar notes. The juicy finish is filled with baker’s chocolate and white pepper details. Lithe and pure.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
