The wines and flavors of the ‘other’ California (regions outside of Napa Valley) are featured at SOHO this week and through August 31.

Please make reservations here: https://www.opentable.com/r/soho-atlanta

First, SOHO will pour a 2020 Shooting Star Sauvignon Blanc from Lake County, CA.

This Sauvignon Blanc shows off the great growing region of Lake County, aromas are of guava and citrus zest, with flavors of passionfruit, pineapple, and pink grapefruit.

The second wine is a 2019 Beckman Vineyards Cuvee Le Bec from Santa Ynez Valley, CA.

Black and blue fruits, licorice, violets, and pepper aromas lead the way in this outstanding vintage of Cuvee le Bec. A cooler vintage brings some fantastic structure and acid-ity, where the blackberry, dark cherry, licorice, pepper, and roasted herbs are complex and long on the palate

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2018 Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles, CA.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon presents vivid varietal aromas of luscious black fruits with notes of cedar, pen-cil shaving and black olive. A deep, layered palate un-folds with heady flavors of black currant, blackberry and blueberry with suggestions of cherry, mint, vanilla, and toasted oak. Plump tannins and balanced acidity add length and structure to a richly integrated finish.
