Michel Rolland. Big scores. Buy now, ask questions later. In all seriousness, this blend of Malbec, Merlot, Syrah and Cab will please a lot of people. Yes, it does smell like a well-capitalized winery’s barrel room, but flourishes of blackberry, black currants and fruitcake aromas add complexity. Brawny and spicy on the palate, the Clos de los Siete also shows a sense of balance; it’s not at all over the top compared to other similarly lauded efforts out there.
