Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2008 Clos de Los Siete is a blend of 56% Malbec, 21% Merlot, with the balance Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 11 months in one-third new French, one-third second use barrels, and one-third in vat. It offers up an expressive nose of cedar, spice box, brier, floral notes, and assorted black fruits. Round, ripe, and surprisingly complex for a wine of its humble price, it is an outstanding value meant for drinking over the next 5-6 years. (Dec 2011)

The 2005 Clos de los Siete is composed of 40% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 20% Syrah. Two-thirds of the wine was aged in 100% new French oak, the balance in tank, and was bottled without fining or filtration. Inky purple-colored, the wine has an expressive bouquet of smoky oak, spice box, tobacco, blueberry, black cherry, and black currant. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has layers of ripe, spicy black fruits, light tannin, excellent balance, and a long, fruit-filled finish. It will benefit from 2-3 years in the cellar but can be enjoyed now. It is an outstanding value and there should be no shortage of wine. Clos de los Siete is a project of Michel Rolland. The vineyard, located about 60 miles south of Mendoza at about 3000 feet of elevation, has 300 acres in production with another 875 planted. WA 92pts 2006
