A collaborative project by seven producers under the banner of Michel Rolland, this is a blend of composed of Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. Very dark in the glass, this is not a shy wine.
"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."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright medium ruby. Sexy, nuanced aromas of blackberry, game, chocolate, herbs and smoky oak, with suggestions of liqueur-like ripeness. Suave on entry, then dense and smooth in the middle, showing good violet lift to the intense black fruit flavors. The rising finish shows excellent retention of fruit and tannins that are firm but not hard. As usual, this bottling offers a lot of flavor for the price."
International Wine Cellar
"A modern malbec, this blends scents of sweet black fruit with notes of tart red fruit, ripe, rich and juicy. Still youthful, the wine's texture needs meat to give it shape.
Wine & Spirits
Smooth & Supple
Very nice red blend. Smooth, goes down easy. Pairs well with food or on it's own.
Big & Bold
This was dark red but not bitter or dry. Could drink alone or paired with a nice steak.
