SOHO is bringing Flight Night back home to the U.S. with wines from California!🍇 We’ve got 3 beauties this week, paired with delectable tapas for your enjoyment, so get out of the rain, and come see us at 5:30 in Vinings!
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday March 3rd, and the wines and their tapas will be available through March 9th.
First, SOHO will pour a Au Bon Climat Chardonnay 2017 from Santa Barbara County. The winemaker offers,
“The 2017 Santa Barbara County Chardonnay is a beautiful example of the Au Bon Climat style. The flinty, stony aromas stand out while in the background is a hard spice note from surlee barrel aging. There are notes of lemon-lime and soft vanilla. With the first taste it is irresistible.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Ancient Peaks Zinfandel 2016 from Paso Robles. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“The 2016 Zinfandel jumps out of the glass with bold aromas of cherry jam, wild blackberry, violets, kirsch, and toasty oak. A rich, viscous texture is packed with dense flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, cola and spicy vanilla. Lively notes of black pepper add focus to a smooth, jammy finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Iron & Sand Cabernet 2017 from Paso Robles. Notes on the wine,
“A layered and well-structured Paso Robles Cabernet with black fruit aromas and rich, mouthwatering flavors, balanced with velvety tannins and a lively acidity profile.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
