Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2010 Clos de los Siete is a blend of 53% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 11% Syrah aged for 12 months in French oak (first, second and third fill.) The nose is packed full of blackberry and mulberry fruit, although it is missing the delineation and lift of other Argentinean reds at the same price point. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded tannins on the entry. It is nicely balanced with good depth and length, underpinned by a solid core of toasty blackberry and raspberry fruit. My main quibble is that it finishes rather clumsily without the focus and clarity that I expected. Still, it has good substance and is packed full of flavor. Drink now-2015.
"The 2009 Clos de Los Siete is a nearly identical blend with the same elevage. Ripe, succulent, and impressively balanced, this outstanding value will also drink well for another 5-6 years. Clos de Los Siete is the project of Michel Rolland and his associates." - Parker "Rich yet cut, with complex layers of cassis, blackberry and fig paste leading to notes of tobacco and wild herb that linger on the minerally finish. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot." - Wine Spectator "(a blend of 57% malbec, 15% merlot, 15% cabernet sauvignon, 10% syrah and 3% petit verdot): Bright medium ruby. Sexy, nuanced aromas of blackberry, game, chocolate, herbs and smoky oak, with suggestions of liqueur-like ripeness. Suave on entry, then dense and smooth in the middle, showing good violet lift to the intense black fruit flavors. The rising finish shows excellent retention of fruit and tannins that are firm but not hard. As usual, this bottling offers a lot of flavor for the price". 90 points Steve Tanzer International Wine Cellar
