VinoUS Media Review
Vivid ruby-red. Aromas of ripe red and dark berries, spicecake and candied flowers are complemented by a smoky mineral nuance that builds in the glass. Sappy black raspberry and cherry flavors show good depth as well as energy. Silky and appealingly sweet, finishing with sharp focus and smooth tannins that fold into the wine's juicy fruit. Raised in stainless steel and concrete tanks. Drink now-2025. (Josh Raynolds)
WHAT MAKES THIS WINE UNIQUE?
This tremendous quality wine is made from old vine Garnacha. San Martin produces some of the most floral and mineral Garnachas in all of Spain. Zestos shows the complexity of wine twice its price. In fact, many wines that cost three times the price of Zestos do not show the complexity of this humble yet complex wine.
Wine Tasting 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 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 and pairs well with just about any type of food: pizza, panini sandwiches, pulled pork sliders, fajitas, cheese quesadillas, pastrami and corned beef sandwiches. This is an excellent wine to sip without food, as well. If you don't have any aged manchego or aged Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese handy, just pour some in your glass and enjoy!
