I’ve had this one in the cellar for the last 4 years and decided it was time to give it a whirl. The wine is dark inky in color. Mild black berries come through on the nose. On the mid pallet the wine has some lovely deep rich black berry flavors, some vanilla, mocha and some lovely velvety texture on the tongue. On the finish the wine has some firm tannins and some alcohol present. This is a lovely wine. I would give it a 90-91. We paired it with a BBQ’d tenderloin and it held up well. I would say this one still has some life left in the bottle. Sadly I have no more …

From the LCBO web site:
CLOS DE LOS SIETE 2005 Mendoza Conceived by the famous consulting winemaker, Michel Rolland, Clos de Los Siete (Vineyard of the Seven) is an enterprise consisting of seven top winery owners from Bordeaux who each planted vineyards in Argentina. Tasting Note: Perhaps the best since the exceptional 2002 is the 2005 Clos de Los Siete … It shows lush vanilla, black cherry and violet aromas, and big, mocha-accented blackberry and cedar stylings. It should sleep in your cellar for a couple of years to mellow the still youthful tannins. Score – 90.
