We’ve had so much fun exploring the New World wines of the Pacific Northwest, that it’s tough to say that it’s the last week of this region at SOHO! We’re going out with a bang though, bringing you a fruity Pinot Gris, a classic-style Pinot Noir, and a juicy Cabernet Sauvignon that is guaranteed to please. Chef Joe’s three perfectly-paired tapas are creative and delicious, and will round out your flight experience! Come visit us this final week of the Pacific Northwest, for next week is a new month and a new region.
This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday September 27th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through October 3rd.
First, SOHO will pour a 2016 Anne Amie Pinot Gris from Willamette Valley, and offers the following tasting notes,
“AROMA magnolia, pear, gardenia, white peach, jasmine, powdered candy, gala apple, straw. FLAVOR Asian pear, Granny Smith apples,
white peach, Meyer lemon, white tea. FINISH dry, long, rich.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2015 Patricia Green Reserve Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley. The wine is described as,
“The Reserve program has evolved from an every-so-often produced bottling to the main stay of our production. It allows us to use barrels from our vineyard designated sites that we think don’t represent what we think that site’s profile truly is. Sometimes that is based on vine age, clonal material or location within the site. This allows us to create a blended wine that has a degree of consistency to it each vintage that is of high-quality and will retail for $27.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2015 Canvasback Cabernet Sauvignon from Red Mountain, WA. The winemaker says,
“This fragrant wine begins with alluring aromas of blackberry, plum and mountain huckleberry intermingled with brighter notes of Bing cherry and ripe wild strawberry. As it evolves in the glass, layers of anise and sarsaparilla are revealed, alongside hints of caramel and espresso from barrel aging. On the palate, the entry is supple, weighty and rounded, with deliciously ripe tannins and juicy acidity coming together to create a classically structured Cabernet.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef Joe Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
