Wine Tasting Info
Vintage: 2005Producer: Michel Rolland
Varietal: 50% Malbec, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon10% Syrah
Location: Mendoza, Argentina (town of Tunuyan)
This wine is a combination of seven vineyards that lies in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, south of Mendoza, Argentina, hence the name "Clos de los Siete". The Tunuyan river flows through the valley down from the Andes Mountains providing the main source for irrigation. The vineyards are situated on high elevations with a long growing season with many warm, sunny days with little rain and cool nights.
This is a heavy, fuller bodied red with dark fruits and good tannins. The acidity is still present and balanced in the wine at this stage. Due to the higher alcohol in this wine you will get a sense of heat from this high alcohol content. The wine would benefit from some decanting before drinking to smooth out the wine a little before consuming. In the glass the wine has deep purple hues.
