This Flight Night begins on Wednesday December 9th, and the wines and their tapas will be available until December 15th.
First, SOHO will pour a Maison Louis Latour Pouilly Fuisse 2018 from Beaune, France.
“The wine shows a green-gold colour, and delicate fruit aromas of melons and pears with underlying notes of almonds on the nose that are disarmingly seductive. On the palate there is a round and full herbal fruitiness that complements the crisp acidity leading to a satisfying finish.”
The second wine is a Ancient Peaks Zinfandel 2018 from Paso Robles. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“The 2018 Zinfandel offers deep, savory aromas of black cherry and plum with notes of vanilla, tobacco and dusty spice. Bright, brambly flavors of red raspberry and boysenberry unfold across a juicy texture with hints of cedar wood and black tea. Fresh acidity adds lift and structure to a sleek, peppery finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Andronicus Red Wine 2018 from Napa Valley. Notes on the wine,
“The 2018 Andronicus is a wine that well represents the Bordeaux Blend profile that this program exemplifies. Aromatics of concentrated raspberry, chocolate dust and crushed flower petal are followed by a flavor profile of spiced fruit, raspberry compote and hints of vanilla and crème brulee. As is customary, the concentrated mid-palate and round tannins make this wine delicious upon release, while giving it the ageability one would expect from a fine Napa Valley blend.”
