  • Whoooaaaaa! This babys vintage is correct from 1986 This is
    3 weeks 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

    2 weeks 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!

If Steph Curry Were a Glass of Wine?

Who is He?

Steph Curry is the baddest NBA basketball player in the world right now. Playing for the Golden State Warriors, he can shoot the ball from as far back as 50 feet with absolute ease. It’s simply not fair. He’s a smaller player (around 6 feet 3inches tall with a very thin frame) that packs a punch every time he makes a basket. Using traits that describe Steph Curry, I have the perfect wine that resembles him. The wine is…

2009 Aldo Contorno Barolo from Piedmont, Italy

The wine begin with a light feel with lots of raspberry, cranberry, leather, truffle, tar and rose and then hits you a powerful dry, tannic bomb! There’s no way to defend it, it’s my favorite Italian wine.
By the way, I used a 2009 vintage because that is the year Steph Curry was drafted! Cheers!
