Labor Wines

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill – Las Vegas

I am very happy to announce that the first restaurant in Las Vegas to purchase Labor Wines is Blue Ribbon Sushi & Grill at The Cosmopolitan!  They started carrying the wine yesterday and now you will be able to sip on a glass or enjoy a bottle of our 2009 Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley.

Blue Ribbon is one of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas, not only courtesy of their impeccable food quality and varied selection, but from the people there who provide amazing service in a relaxing environment.  Every time I’m there, I feel like I’m back in New York City (this being a good thing), which also makes me feel like I’m at home.

When you enjoy a taste of our 2009 Pinot Noir, expect flavors of Black Cherry with slight spice notes from the 1st and 2nd year barrels.  Cocoa powder is coming through on the finish currently and a balanced mouth feel.

If you’re curious to learn about where else Labor is going to be served in Las Vegas or interested in purchasing our wines directly feel free to contact me via email, Corey@LaborWines.com or on my cell, 702.466.0987, plus you can always reach us via TwitterFacebook.
