Clos de Los Siete Clos de Los Siete 2009

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

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 a wine project conceived in 1998 by renown French winemakers Michel Rolland and Jean-Michel Arcaute. The idea was to produce a wine in the then largely untapped landscape of Tunuyan valley, south of Mendoza, Argentina. The name derives from the original seven wine industry investors who were first attached to the project. Their mission was to make wines in Argentina that rival some of the best in the world, without the use of fertilizers, pesticides and with traditional, time-tested methods. Since then, a collective of wine-making estates bearing the Clos de los Siete name have emerged and gained prominence.  Read less

This blend by Michel Rolland has a bouquet of mixed berries and a nice variety of flavor in the mouth. The texture is oddly grainy, and only partially redeemed by the long finish. Bonus: it brings out the saltiness in food. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=366)

Notes of black fruits, hints of tobacco and sweet spice come together in this blend of malbec, merlot, cabernet and syrah. It's juicy and round, the muscular structure holding the fruit in check. An ideal match for game. Clos de los Siete is Michel Rolland's project high up in Mendoza's Uco Valley.

Ruby-red. Plum, dark raspberry, mocha, spicecake and tobacco on the complex and inviting nose. Supple and sweet but with lovely intensity and chocolatey ripeness to the plum and currant flavors. Plush and palate-saturating without coming across as heavy or overly sweet. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and very good length. A very satisfying and ripe wine with good inner-mouth perfume.

Clos de los Siete, the amalgamated product of Michel Rolland's Uco Valley wine commune, is rich, round and ripe, with deep aromas and trimmings like polished oak and minerality. The wine is proper,medium to full in size, and full of blackberry, plum and cocoa. No hiccups, pure fruit and complexity make this stellar for the price.

Quite ripe, but focused and juicy, with blueberry, aandccedil;aandiacute; 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.

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.

Bright, full ruby-red. Crushed black fruits, mocha, bitter chocolate, licorice and smoked meat on the nose. Sweet, penetrating and firm-edged; aromatic in the mouth but tightly wound today. I like this wine's balance of sweetness and acidity. The tannins are firm but not quite hard. This energetic wine needs time to soften.
