    Winemaker's Notes:

    A collaborative project by seven producers under the banner of Michel Rolland, this is a blend of composed of Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. Very dark in the glass, this is not a shy wine. The dominant feature here is sweet, lush, dark fruits. The oak, which gives a spicy sheen, is very much in the background. There's some structure here, with grippy tannins hiding under the sweet fruit, and overall the wine is savory in character.

    Critical Acclaim:

    There may be no finer red wine value in Argentina than this superb blend of 48% Malbec, 28% Merlot, 12% Syrah, and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is aged for 11 months, two-thirds in 100% new French oak and the balance in vat and bottled without fining or filtration. Opaque purple-colored, the wine coats the glass while offering up a superb bouquet of toasty oak, violets, mineral, black currant, blueberry, and black cherry. This is followed by a layered wine with gobs of ripe fruit, a plush texture, outstanding balance, and several years of aging potential (not that many buyers will be laying this down). This lengthy effort over-delivers and then some.

    Notes of black fruits, hints of tobacco and sweet spice come together in this blend of malbec, merlot, cabernet and syrah. It's juicy and round, the muscular structure holding the fruit in check. An ideal match for game. Clos de los Siete is Michel Rolland's project high up in Mendoza's Uco Valley.

    Clos de los Siete, the amalgmated product of Michel Rolland’s Uco Valley wine commune, is rich, round and ripe, with deep aromas and trimmings like polished oak and minerality. The wine is proper, medium to full in size, and full of blackberry, plum and cocoa. No hiccups, pure fruit and complexity make this stellar for the price.

    Found this wine silky smooth, while exhibing a subtle boldness. Lingers long on the palette with a taste that entices you to gently take another sip as soon as the previous one leaves your lips. In a word, this wine was "delicious". What an incredible value for the price.

    Not sure if it is legitimate to compare these reds, but they are some what similar. But the Clos de los Siete Super Red Blend has much longer lasting note leaving more spices and fresher meaty taste contained by berries flavors. Definitely prefer this more. 90-91.

    Wonderful wine. Deep rich color in the glass, with aromas to match. Dark cherry, maybe some plum, with a strong presence in the glass. The finish had a bit of vanilla, lingers well. Very pleasant medium to full body.

    Tobacco first, black berries follow. Very good wine, I'll be buying more.

    Very dark purple in the glass. Has a nice nose of dark fruit, a full body, somewhat dry with good acidity and noticeable tannins. Taste of dark fruit, vanilla, and hints of chocolate. Has a fairly long finish. Needs to breathe for 30-45 minutes at least.
