A more refined red from here than in the past showing blackberry, blueberry and hints of walnuts. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Why wait on this? Delicious wine. Drink now.

The 2013 Clos de los Siete, from a cool and late vintage, could very well be the freshest wine produced at this address so far. This blend from the different producers associated with the brand ended up being 53% Malbec, 23% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah and 4% Petit Verdot from different vineyards in Vista Flores. Seventy percdent of the wine matured in French barriques for 11 months. There is a great sense of harmony, combining ripe fruit, flowers and spices in a subtle and elegant way. The palate is ultra polished, with very good balance and freshness, really easy to drink. 800,000 bottles produced.

Bright medium ruby. Aromas of burnished oak, currant, licorice, violet and bitter chocolate. Plush flavors of dark berries and spices spread out to saturate the palate. Offers lovely breadth and sweetness of fruit for a red wine in this price range. Tannins are sweet and seamless. This is already tasty but will keep.
