Clos de Los Siete

The initial idea was to produce a blended wine based on different grape varieties to bring greater complexity, personality and harmony. It is the terroir which gives the wine its personality. It was up to us to find the grape varieties and fermentation processes enabling us to give the best possible expression to the characteristics of the terroir.

Wine Advocate

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.

Clos de Los Siete is the project of Michel Rolland and his associates.

Score: 90. —Jay Miller, December 2011.

Wine Spectator

Quite ripe, but focused and juicy, with blueberry, acai berry and bramble notes laced with fruitcake and spice hints. A nice briary edge keeps the finish honest. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now. 50,000 cases made.

Score: 89. —James Molesworth, April 30, 2010.

Wine Enthusiast

Heady and floral, but also kind of closed, tight and generic on the nose. The palate packs in the extract, acidity and tannins to create a tough but loud flavor set of blackberry, pepper and licorice. Pointed on the finish and less friendly than past vintages.

Score: 88. —Michael Schachner, November 01, 2010.
