  • Whoooaaaaa! This babys vintage is correct from 1986 This is
    7 months ago by mariolunasomm Whoooaaaaa! This baby’s vintage is correct from 1986. This is Marqués de Murrieta Castilla Ygay Viura. 252 months aged in American oak, another 67 months aged in ceramic tanks, and then rested for another 3 years minimum to achieve the flavor profile that they want. There’s a ton of dill, Meyer lemon, and grilled pear on the nose and finishes very bright (even after 30 years), full-bodied, and a finish that lasts over two minutes long. So how did I sell it? My guest told me they had an specific amount that wanted to spend and they wanted to go
  • 273000 Thats how much wine sales that we have brought
    7 months ago by mariolunasomm $273,000: That’s how much wine sales that we have brought in just from  @bodegasontanon  since the end of 2015. For my wine program, this is THE most important wine portfolio at Jaleo Las Vegas. We are lucky to represent their craft with wines like the Clarete Rosado, Vetiver Viura, the 2005 Reserva and Gran Reserva, Mitologica, and the fun sweet, dessert Marco Fabio. Cheers!

World Wide Pinot Noir Flavors

The geogaphy of Pinot Noir or any grape drastically changes based on the amount of sunlight, length of sunlight, the degree of latitude from the equator, the elevation, and humidity. I will save you the boredom because I could go on an 6,000 word thesis on how every wine like these flavors change but I like you and not willing to put you to sleep. Instead, I will showcase the five geographical areas Pinots thrive and list suggestions to the reader to eventually want to try in a future date. Here we go!
