Tasting the 2016 Clos de los Siete was a very pleasant surprise, further deepening our appreciation of the exceptional conditions offered by the wonderful Uco Valley. This atypical vintage, with its low temperatures and high rainfall, has produced a wine with intense aromatic expression and tremendous freshness on the palate. A vibrant ruby red color, the elegant blend offers amazing aromas of blackberries and plums with spicy floral notes. On the palate, it is balanced and fresh with a pleasant acidity characteristic of the vintage, giving it an excellent capacity to age. Cabernet-Franc was once again included in blend and, even though it accounts for just 1%, adds an agreeable hint of spice to the palate.

A smoking value, the 2020 (55% Malbec, 16% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Syrah, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc) reveals a healthy purple hue as well as darker fruits and a pure, lively bouquet that includes lots of blueberries, spring flowers, leaf herbs, and violets. Nicely textured, medium to full-bodied, and balanced, it drinks as if it cost 2-3 times the price. It should evolve for 4-6 years, and I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see it evolve longer as well.

The 2020 Clos de los Siete by Michel Rolland is a blend of 55% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 9% Syrah, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc from the Uco Valley. It was two-thirds aged for 11 months in new and used barrels. Garnet red in the glass. The nose presents fresh plum, blueberries and herbs along with aromas from the aging process and hints of spice, bay leaf and thyme. Intense and free-flowing with refined tannins and moderate juice, this was fine-tuned for a warm year.

Clos de los Siete almost never fails, and this version from a ripe and easy vintage is just that: ripe and easy. Inky blackberry and black currant aromas show a waft of campfire creosote, while this feels big and round, with plenty of mouth-blackening fruit. Oak-aided blackberry, cassis and chocolate flavors come with a hint of herbs, while the finish is smooth and mild. Drink through 2023.

The 2020 Clos de Los Siete has a darker and riper profile, juicy and round, with volume and glycerin but with fine tannins and refreshing flavors. It was produced with a blend of 55% Malbec, 16% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Syrah, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, slightly higher in Malbec in this warmer year. Production was shorter, 805,000 bottles. It was bottled in March 2022.
