World famous Oenologist Michel Rolland first went to Argentina in 1988. He immediately fell in love with the country and its fantastic winegrowing potential.
After long search with, a winegrower colleague from Pomerol, he found an ideal plot of land in Argentina's Uco Valley at an altitude of 3,600 feet uniquely exposed with soils made up of pebbles, clay and sand. There he planted the Clos de los Siete vineyard.
Also known as C7 this wine is the ultimate blend crafted by world's most renowned Master Blender. Michel Roland has worked with and made wine for over 150 of the greatest vineyards and wineries in the world and when asked, this wine is the favorite of all the wines he's produced.
Wine Enthusiast scored this 90 ppoints saying "Even in a tough vintage like 2016, Clos de los Siete comes through. The nose is bright and popping, with berry and cassis notes. On the palate, this Malbec blend is tight and focused, with nothing out of place. Juicy plum and berry flavors are slightly spicy in front of a firm finish."
The Wine Advocate scored this 91 points saying "I 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."
James Suckling scored this 94 points saying "Blackberries, blueberries, crushed violets, hot stones and dried herbs. Full-bodied with structured tannins, great acidity drive and a medium-chewy finish. A wine that really grows on you, as it exudes charm and finesse. Drink in 2022."
