It’s a perfect time for spanish wines, yes? We think so too, and tonight for Flight Night, we’ve got 3 you’ll love, + Chef Todd’s yummy paired tapas to make your tastebuds sing! We’re open from 5-9pm, so please make reservations here: http://ow.ly/BtNa50AXR9c
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday August 12th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through August 18th.
First, SOHO will pour a Bodegas La Caña Albariño 2019 from Rias Baixas, Spain.
“Light, bright yellow. Lively, sharply focused scents of lime zest, green apple, jasmine, tarragon and ginger. Dry and taut on the palate, offering vibrant citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of smoky minerals that
builds with air. The floral note comes back strong on the finish, which shows excellent clarity and firm mineral bite. This wine was
aged in stainless steel tanks, with some lees stirring to add body.”
The second wine is a Celler Cal Pla Black Slate Porrera 2018 from Priorat, Spain. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“The wine has a traditional profile, with ripe fruit and noticeable impact from the oak, following the house style. The palate is medium to full-bodied with some dusty tannins and an earthy finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Finca Allende Rioja 2011 from Rioja, Spain. Notes on the wine,
“Intense cherry color with purple hints. On the nose, fruit sensations (blackberries, blueberries, black fruits) dominate the perfectly integrated tones conveyed by aging in wood barrels that provide sensations of cedar and tobacco.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
