🍇 Say adios to España: Flight Night is TONIGHT! We’re finishing off August with the finale of spanish wines, and some ridiculously tasty tapas to go with them. Join us for you mid-week break, and make reservations with us here: http://ow.ly/DBKK50B0Pnz

This Flight Night begins on Wednesday August 26th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through September 1st.

First, SOHO will pour a Bodegas Viña Nora Albariño 2018 from Rias Baixas, Spain.

“It has a bright, straw-yellow color with green shades and a high aromatic intensity. Fruity, with notes of pear and white flowers, such as honeysuckle. Albariño’s varietal aromas and the mineral character of the soil are emphasized in this wine. On the palate, it is a well-structured, full-bodied and elegant wine in which its aging in the bottle is present.”

The second wine is a Tosalet Priorat 2015 from Priorat, Spain. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Clear deep dark purple colour. Pure and very intense aromas reminiscent of red berry fruit such as cranberries, red cherries and raspberries combined with mineral notes of flint and hints of eucalyptus. The palate is
dry, full bodied with rich concentrated juicy fruit, firm but ripe tannins and a refreshing acidity making this a great food wine.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Marques de Marietta Rioja Riserva ‘15 from Rioja, Spain. Notes on the wine,

“With a bright ruby color, Marqués de Murrieta Reserva 2015, exhibits a significant and open nose with strawberries, cranberries and redcurrant jam aromas. The intense fruity expression stands out over a spiced bed made from thyme, laurel and red black pepper within the distinguishable Mediterranean herbs of our Ygay Estate.”
