It’s safe to say that at this point in the year, (due to COVID) that we’re all REALLY looking forward to our next vacation. Hands up if you’d hop on a plane ASAP to hit Napa for the weekend?!
In the meantime, we can dream of future adventures, drink fabulous wines from California, and be thankful of our health and safety. Sound good?
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday May 27th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through June 2nd. A big request below:
Our seating capacity is limited, and has been reduced by 50%, so please make your reservations below so that we may ensure proper social distancing protocols to keep our guests and employees safe. We appreciate you!
First, SOHO will pour a Hahn SLH Pinot Noir 2017 from Santa Lucia Highlands. The winemaker offers,
“The aromas exhibit scents of black cherries with hints of spice. The flavors are crisp and intense. They range from black cherries to boysenberries and plum skin. The cool climate of the Highlands adds a note of refreshing acidity to the overall profile making this a delicious Pinot to be enjoyed in its youth or aged for several years for a more mature wine experience.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Hames Valley Vineyard VDR 2015 from Monterey County. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“VDR is full-bodied yet supple, with deep, ripe fruit flavors of black currant and black raspberry perfumed by delicate notes of crushed violet. A firm, chalky tannin structure belies the velvety, luscious mouthfeel. Dense flavors integrate beautifully for a long, layered finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a The Paring Red 2015 from Paso Robles. Notes on the wine,
“Utterly fascinating nose mixing lifted black fruit, savory green herbs and daring notes of grilled bread, espresso and anise. Fills the palate with bright red fruit and black plum. Mulberry sweetness and a wonderful tension between tannic structure and bright acidity. Balanced and refined, a study in elegance.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
