WineScores' Review

Broad, supple, elegant.
From the portfolio of international celebrity vintner Michel Rolland, the Clos de Los Siete combines mostly Malbec with Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah and a splash of Petit Verdot.
It's typically a standout and this year offers a compote of warm black berries, mocha, toasted spices, plum-cake, roasted herbs and hints of leather. The palate is supple, the fruit generous and sweet. It is a broad wine, weighty and present but yet elegant. Great levity from acidity here, and a finish trailing dusty dark cocoa and spice.
