This is it, Atlanta. The final two weeks of 2018! We hope that you all aren’t running around too much, and that you’re able to enjoy the holiday season with loved ones.
For the remainder of the month, we’re featuring the wines that were your favorites this year, so you can come back to see us and enjoy them one last time. Make sure to take some time to slow down and savor the season with us. We’re always here for a fantastic meal, special bottle of wine, and good company. Happy holidays from SOHO!
This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, December 19th, and the wines and their tapas will be available for two weeks through December 31st.
First, SOHO will pour a Cuvelier Los Andes – Colección 2011 from Valle de Uco, Argentina. The winemaker offers,
“The Colección is a blend of varietals. Purple in color, with a brooding bouquet, it is a dense, structured, rich wine with impeccable balance, volume, and length. It has the structure to evolve for 2-3 years but can be approached now. It is a great value.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Four Vines “The Biker” Zinfandel, Paso Robles 2016 from Paso Robles. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“Dark berry and spicy notes aromas lead to a palate rich with jammy, ripe plum and blackberry flavors bolstered by a touch of black pepper and sweet, toasted oak. The 2016 offers a plush mouthfeel and a long, velvety finish.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Piccini Brunello Di Montalcino 2012 from Montalcino, Tuscany. Notes on the wine,
“This wine plays its cards close to its chest and reveals characteristics aromas of wild berry, cherry cola, grilled herb and toasted almond. The bouquet is not too intense. The wine is refined in large oak casks for two years. The quality of the tannins is not totally smooth, but this is acommon trait in the Brunello’s from this vintage.”
