Clos de los Siete benefits from their extreme knowledge and their commitment to create a truly great Argentinean wine. Particular care has been taken with the viticulture, vinification, and with the maturization so as to obtain the essence of this rich terroir and the noble varieties where Malbec rules.
A new star is born with seven points, symbolizing ambition and conviction.

RATING: Very Satisfied
I have tasted this wine several times .. and come to the same conclusion each time. Lovely garnet color, full bodied with the complexity of an Old World style, but with the fruit forwardness of a style more akin to New World. It has good mouthfeel as well as a strong finish. Highly recommended. Cost ~$17.
