    Winemaker Notes

    Vivid ruby. Lively red and dark berry aromas show good clarity and a touch of candied flowers. Supple and seamless in texture, offering juicy black raspberry and cherry flavors given spine by a gentle mineral nuance. Finishes fruity and broad, with a touch of white pepper adding lift and cut.

    Zestos, Spain
    Zestos Winery Image

    'Zestos' means 'basket' in English. Not too many years ago, baskets like the ones depicted on these labels were used to transport grapes from the vineyard to the wineries. 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, Zestos is "A staggering value".

    Zestos produces from organically grown Malvar vines 35+ years of age and Garnacha vines that were planted in 1969 in the high elevation vineyards of San Martin de Valdeiglesias – northwest of Madrid. Zestos also produces wines in the southeast region of Madrid in the town of Arganda del Rey, within the Arganda subregion.

    Sitting just north of La Mancha, Spain’s (and Europe’s, for that matter) largest classified wine region, this region is much smaller than the vast La Mancha. However, Vinos de Madrid DO is a relatively large region in and of itself, with four subregions that start about 9 miles from the city center. Three of the subregions form a semicircle around the southern suburbs, Arganda, Navalcarnero and San Martín, where styles vary from one to another. El Molar, situated directly north of the city, is the newly created 4th subregion.

    Since Vinos de Madrid was granted DO status in 1990, it has immersed itself in local wine production. Since then, substantial efforts have been made to raise quality and knowledge of the wines produced here. Millions of tourists who visit Spain’s capital city each year help the wines gain recognition and popularity across the globe. The growing investment through the years has paid off and export markets are increasingly interested in Vinos de Madrid wines.

    While Tempranillo is the most planted grape variety in the Arganda subregion in the southeast, Garnacha is the dominant grape in all other subregions, including El Molar in the north, Navalcarnero in the south, and especially San Martín de Valdeiglesias in the west.

    Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. While Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha), today it is more recognized as the key player in the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its villages. Somm Secret—The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic, single varietal Grenache (there called Cannonau). California, Washington and Australia have achieved found success with Grenache, both flying solo and in blends.
