Winemaker Notes

Zestos has such a pleasing aspect and texture and such fresh, succulent red and dark berry aromas and fruit; it's a perfect introduction to Spanish wine. Put it next to any casual foods you care to: pizza, Panini sandwiches, pulled pork sliders, fajitas, cheese quesadillas, and pastrami and corned beef sandwiches. This is an "easy quaffer" wine, as well. If you don't have any aged manchego or aged Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese handy, just pour some in your glass and enjoy!

Critical Acclaim

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Brilliant ruby color. Assertive aromas of black raspberry, cherry and fresh flowers, with Asian spice accents building with air. Juicy and supple on the palate, offering gently sweet red and dark berry flavors and a hint of dark chocolate. Shows impressive energy and clarity on the finish, which features a zesty white pepper nuance. There's a lot of wine here for the money.

Made from old vine (over 40 years of age), high altitude (2800 feet) Grenache, this head-pruned vineyard planted on granite soils has produced an unbelievable wine for the price. Lots of kirsch, strawberry, black currant and licorice aromas jump from the glass of this medium-bodied, richly fruity, surprisingly intense red.

If you love red wines of tension that exhibit purity and finesse or white wines of complexity and tremendous value you will find Bodega Zestos to be your new love. In the words of Robert M. Parker, Jr, the most influential wine critic in the world,... View More
