Winemaker's Notes

Intense, complex and elegant, Siesta wines are our best effort to express the "varietal" personality, enhanced by the unique characteristics of the Vistaflores terroir.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright ruby-red. Slightly port-like aromas and flavors of black cherry, fig, licorice and mocha oak lifted by a whiff of candied violet. Round, dense and glyceral, but with good verve to the plush, sweet middle palate. Finishes with sexy nutty and chocolatey oak tones and excellent length. Has the balance and firm tannic structure to reward at least few years of cellaring.
Rating: 90(+?)"
