Offers a lithe and well-cut blend of cherry, dried berry, currant and spice box flavors that mesh easily. The richly textured finish lingers with creamy notes. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2021.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 90 points
2015 was the first of the rainy El Niño vintages, which resulted in some challenges for the Valle de Uco, where the grapes for the 2015 Clos de Los Siete red blend are grown. The blend changes with the year and is decided by tasting, but it’s always more than 50% Malbec complemented with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Thirty percent of the wine remains unoaked to keep the freshness, and the rest matured in first, second and third use barriques for 11 to 12 months. This is a regular and harmonious wine with a commercial profile, approachable, polished and sleek. The palate is medium to full-bodied with round, lush tannins and clean flavors.
