Grand Wine recommendations from the Sommelier
Your Sommelier Javier Moreno also has some wine recommendations that are the perfect pairing for the traditional roast turkey Christmas dinner or lunch.
Cava Quintanilla Syrah Reserva, San Luis Potosí, Mexico 2017
A well-structured wine with intense color, fragrance and notes of blackberry, spices, lavender and a hint of roast coffee beans. It is a dry wine with bold flavors, and a hint of smoke that lingers as an afterthought and excellent acidity.
Bodega Los Cedros Fusión, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Malbec, Coahuila, Mexico 2017
A medium-bodied wine full of fruit flavors and a fragrance of black and red berries, a hint of black pepper and smooth chocolate notes. The fruit flavors really come through and it leaves you with a delightful lingering taste of stewed black fruit, perfect for the season.
