3 Cheers for Flight Night! 🙌🍷This week it’s all about amazing Vegetarian tapas paired with three beautiful complimentary wines. Will you miss the meat? Nope! Come kick this week off with us TONIGHT at 5:30 in Vinings…..
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, October 23, and the wines and their tapas will be available through October 29th.
First, SOHO will pour a Catena Alta Chardonnay 2016 from Mendoza, AR. The winemaker offers,
“The Catena Alta Chardonnay presents an intenese greenish-yellow color. The nose offers ripe white fruit aromas such as pears and peaches that are interwoven with delicate citrus and floral notes, such as Jasmine. The palate shows rich and concentrated ripe pear, apple and apricot flavors with a light note of minerality. The wine finishes long and complex with crisp, mineral acidity.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Lapostolle “Cuvee Alexander” Merlot 2015 from Colchagua, Chili. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“Color: Ruby red with cherry edge Nose: Red fruit aromas such as cherries and strawberry with fresh herbs aromas and a touch of vanilla. Palate: Silky and elegant attack, medium bodied with plums and cherry flavors.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Gerard Bertrand Kosmos Red Blend 2014 from Languedoc-Roussillon, France. Notes on the wine,
“Kosmos has a deep ruby-red colour. This powerful, elegant and nicely-balanced cuvée is endowed with generous red fruits aromas. The tannins are mature, subtle and the lingering finish is amazingly intense. Kosmos has also an important potential for cellaring.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
