TASTING NOTES:

Blackberries, blueberries, crushed violets, hot stones and dried herbs. Full-bodied with structured tannins, great acidity drive and a medium-chewy finish. A wine that really grows on you, as it exudes charm and finesse. Drink in 2022.

 - James Suckling, 94 pts

I also tasted the 2017 next to the 2016 Clos de Los Siete, and the difference was noticeable, as this 2016 was fresher and lighter. The varietal breakdown in this cooler year was 54% Malbec, 18% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Syrah, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, slightly higher in Malbec than in 2017. The wine is approachable, balanced and nicely crafted, produced in a nice-to-drink style with fine-grained, chalky tannins. I think there's a little more nuance and elegance here. 656,000 bottles produced.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

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