Tasting the 2016 Clos de los Siete was a very pleasant surprise, further deepening our appreciation of the exceptional condi- tions offered by the wonderful Uco Valley. This atypical vintage, with its low temperatures and high rainfall, has produced a wine with intense aromatic expression and tremendous freshness on the palate. A vibrant ruby red colour, the elegant blend offers amazing aromas of blackberries and plums with spicy floral notes. On the palate, it is balanced and fresh with a pleasant acidity characteristic of the vintage, giving it an excellent capacity to age. Cabernet-Franc was once again included in blend and, even though it accounts for just 1%, adds an agreeable hint of spice to the palate

Wine AdvocateI also tasted the 2017 next to the 2016 Clos de Los Siete, and the difference was noticeable, as this 2016 was fresher and lighter. The varietal breakdown in this cooler year was 54% Malbec, 18% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Syrah, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, slightly higher in Malbec than in 2017. The wine is approachable, balanced and nicely crafted, produced in a nice-to-drink style with fine-grained, chalky tannins. I think there's a little more nuance and elegance here. 656,000 bottles produced.

Wine SpectatorThis well-knit blend features lithe minerality accenting the dried red fruit and spice flavors. Notes of underbrush show midpalate, with a granular finish offering chewy tannins. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022.
