Ripe plum, black cherry, lavender and cocoa on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, creamy tannins. Polished and rounded with a plush, deep core of dark fruit. Lingering crushed-hazelnut notes on a long, concentrated finish. Drink or hold.
The 2019 Clos de los Siete by Michel Rolland is a blend (50% Malbec, 24% Merlot, 11% Syrah, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot) from the Uco Valley, two- thirds of which was barrel aged. Bright, garnet red in the glass. The aromatic profile features dark fruit, blackberry, blueberry and hints of fresh plum, chutney, mint and a touch of green pepper. Smooth and voluminous with polished tannins and good intensity, the flow is mild but juicy before the lengthy finish.
Roasted plum and cherry flavors show a loamy and coffee bean underpinning, with suave tannins and touches of graphite, fresh tobacco and pepper on the finish. Malbec, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2032. 87,500 cases made, 21,000 cases imported.
