The wines and flavors of Sonoma County take center stage at SOHO this evening for Flight Night! The wines and tapas debuting tonight are available through Tuesday, October 12.

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

First, SOHO will pour a 2018 Buehler Vineyards Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley in Sonoma, California.

Balance and proportion best describe the character of our Russian River Chardonnay; it displays abundant floral and stone fruit aromas lightly accented by toasty, graham cracker sur-lie qualities. The mouth feel is creamy and full but the natural acidity of the Russian River fruit carries this velvet textured package to a long, clean finish.

The second wine is a 2019 Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee from Sonoma Valley, California.

Lush layers of ripe berries with hints of toasted oak are displayed in this vibrant Bordeaux-inspired red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Juicy red fruit, black currants and tobacco come together in this medium-bodied wine. The silky tannins, hints of oak and cedar, and elegant structure finish deliver a real crowd-pleaser.

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2019 Dry Creek Zinfandel from Sonoma County, California.

This vintage presents enticing aromatics of dried cranberry and boysenberry with hints of cocoa powder, nutmeg, dried sage and cedar. On the palate, brambly flavors of blackberry and black cherry come forward with bright acidity complimented by deeper notes of dark chocolate, espresso and black pepper. The tannins are silky and smooth to lend a round, rich mouthfeel. From start to finish, this remarkable wine offers refreshing acidity paired with excellent structure and a round, rich mouthfeel.
