2009 Clos de los Siete - Red Mendoza
Wine Spectator: 89 Points
Rich yet cut, with complex layers of cassis, blackberry and fig paste leading to notes of tobacco and wild herb that linger on the minerally finish. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now. 50,000 cases made.
Wine Enthusiast: 89 Points
Sweet and pleasant smelling, with aromas of wild herbs, lavender and jammy black fruits. Feels chunky and solid, with a grainy, mildly tannic mouthfeel and bright raspberry, cassis and plum flavors. Stout and just rich and thick enough on the finish; Malbec with Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah and Petit Verdot.

The 2009 Clos de Los Siete is a nearly identical blend with the same elevage. Ripe, succulent, and impressively balanced, this outstanding value will also drink well for another 5-6 years.
