Welcome to the first night of Flight Nights 2021! Is there a better way to kick off this year than with a brand new flight of delicious pinot noirs? 🍷🍷🍷 Chef Todd has created the perfect tapas to munch on with the wines, so come see us from 5-9 pm tonight!
Please make reservations with us for social distancing measures for everyone’s safety here: http://ow.ly/uUGJ50BsXoW
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday January 6th, and the wines and their tapas will be available until January 12th.
First, SOHO will pour a Left Coast Cali’s Cuvee Pinot Noir 2017 from Willamette Valley, OR.
“Expressive black cherry,black tea, and forest floor aromas expose a polished and poised dark raspberry, bitter chocolate and spice flavors that finish with our region’s minerality and mild tannin. Cali’s Cuvée is a versatile and exceedingly food friendly.”
The second wine is a Frederic Esmonin 2019 -Les Genevrieres- Pinot Noir from Bourgogne. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“Les Genevrieres glows light red in the glass, yielding aromas of tart cranberry, ripe strawberry, and hints of brown spices. On the palate, soft cherry fruit eases into fleshed-out raspberry elements. The finish is bright and elongated, tying together a very charming, easy-to-drink Burgundy.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Luli Pinot Noir 2016 from Santa Lucia Highlands. Notes on the wine,
“The 2016 Luli Pinot Noir offers vibrant aromatics of fresh black cherry, ripe strawberry, and sous bois. Medium ruby in color, this wine showcases the rugged, foggy slopes of the Santa Lucia Highlands with its lively acidity and rich flavors—of crushed plum and baking spice. The 2016 vintage yielded wines with seamless layers of texture and structure that come to life here with a voluminous blanket of soft, supple tannin.”
