It can easily be argued that California wine comes from the most interesting soils and terroirs for wine lovers, wine makers and wine growers alike. Being wine lovers ourselves, we’re proud to offer wines from the delightfully varied regions of California, especially hard to find gems that you wouldn’t otherwise see on typical wine menus!
This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday March 22nd, and the wines and their tapas will be available through March 28th.
First, SOHO will pour a 2013 Viñas 3 Row Eleven Pinot Noir, and offers the following tasting notes,
“Opulent flavors of red cherries combined with medium toasted French oak. Vinas 3 2013 Pinot Noir can hold its own with any food pairing. It has generous extraction and plenty of soft tannins. The wine is velvety smooth.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2015 The Pairing Red Blend. The wine is described as,
“Classic aromas of cedar and cassis. Pure expression of black and red fruit with lovely herbal notes of sincere cabernet sauvignon. A plush texture combined with a rigid backbone of tannin structure make this wine a truly memorable drinking experience. Classy and regal.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2015 Daou Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles. The winemaker says,
“Smooth, yet robust aromas of blackberry, black currant, and blueberries are infused with sage, dried herbs, espresso bean, and dark chocolate. Secondary aromas of hints of cigar box and vanilla fill the nose. Bold and full-bodied on the palate, this wine offers flavors of dark cherry and cassis with subtle mocha and truffle nuances. A firm but smooth texture of pure blackberry fruit and coffee brings this balanced wine a well-rounded finish backed by a great tannin structure.”
