Winemaker Notes

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

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
A pure expression of malbec, without any interference from oak or excessive extraction, this saturates every corner of the palate with ripe fruit. Ready to pour with lamb chops seasoned with rosemary.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
A rich and elegant red, with a deep well of dark plum, raspberry and fig flavors, accented by concentrated Asian spice notes. Very minerally, showing details of pepper and slate on the lively finish. Drink now through 2020.
TP 90
Tasting Panel
Dark, rich blackberry, spice and velvety texture; lush and ripe, balanced and long.

Siesta Siesta Vineyard and Owner Ernesto Catena Winery Image

Founded by Ernesto Catena, a fourth-generation winemaker of Italian descent, Siesta was inspired by ancient Incan traditions. The Inca would often bury offerings to the land so that it would remain healthy and fertile. Following this ancient tradition, every year Ernesto Catena’s team buries a few bottles of their best wines in the Vistaflores vineyard, hoping that while sleeping their endless “Siesta”, these bottles will protect the vines, people, and harvest. Only biodynamically-certified grapes from the best lots of the Vistaflores vineyard that have been fermented in small tanks are used. The wine is later aged in French and American oak barrels for 14 months and then ages in bottle for another year. Intense, complex, and elegant, Siesta wines aim to express the varietal personality, which is enhanced by the unique characteristics of the Vistaflores terroir.

Malbec

View all products

Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
