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)

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.
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.
Juicy raspberry and red currant fruit is woven with slightly firm toast. Cocoa, raisin and licorice notes peek in on the grippy finish. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2010.
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.
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.
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.
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.
