Closed nose at first but once decanted for and hour soft notes of classic Bordeaux blend are obvious with cassis and dark berry fruits most evident. On the palate the fruit is muted, tannins are very soft and the blackberry, cassis fruit slowly peeks out. I'm thinking this wine is starting to fade but is certainly enjoyable just not memorable.

(Clos de los Siete, Mendoza) Named for its seven partners, Clos de los Siete is a joint venture that includes Michel Rolland. This unfined, unfiltered blend of 48% Malbec, 28% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 12% Syrah offers notes of cherry, tar, earth, licorice, and woodsmoke. It’s medium-bodied and supple, with a long, juicy, dark-fruit finish. Special Report: Argentina
(Clos de los Siete (Tunuyan)) Hand harvested fruit, which is 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Malbec, 10% Merlot and 10% Syrah. This sees a cold maceration, fermented with pigeage, and then bottled unfiltered and unfined. The nose has bright cherry fruit, with a very sweet, ripe and clean character. Soft and creamy on the palate, with nice blackcurrant and raspberry flavours, with some spice and pepper behind. Some grip, and certainly some substance; a rich and pleasing, of rather straightforward fruit-driven wine.
