Javier’s in ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas leans heavily towards Mexican fare, and there’s a fine list of California and international wines to pair with your meal. Sommelier Guillermo Gutierrez is on hand to make suggestions from an extensive wine menu. If you’re having a shrimp or Dungeness crab dish, he might suggest white wines including Three Rivers riesling, Kim Crawford sauvignon blanc, or the Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells’ chardonnay. A Kobe beef entrée might pair with a medium to full intensity merlots by St. Francis and Ferrari-Carano. Diners who are in a bubbly mood can also order flutes of Domaine Chandon Brut Classic or Moët & Chandon Rose Imperial Champagne, since sparkling wine goes with nearly everything.
