With similar blends and provenance, it’s a shootout for Bordeaux style malbec-based wines between Cuvelier and Clos de los Siete. Cuvelier wins this round with a well-rounded, refined effort that offers cherry and plum flavors along with a touch of rose in the bouquet. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=696)

($20; a blend based on 60% malbec) Medium ruby. High-pitched aromas of blackberry and fruitcake, with a medicinal note of licorice. Dense and suave on entry, then concentrated and firm in the middle, even a bit youthfully bound-up, with sound acidity framing the black fruit flavors...finishing with strong black fruit flavors, substantial tannins and excellent grip...Very serious juice for twenty bucks.
