2011 Clos De Siete

I’ve had this one and it’s been consistent year over year. Inky dark in color with a nice nose of black berries. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice rich black berries to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice smooth tannins and some nice acidity. The wine is a very nice food friendly wine. I would give it an 88-89.

From the LCBO web site (for the 2012 vintage):

Aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis, blackcherry and dark chocolate. Dense, creamy and sweet, conveying an impression of elegance for all its volume. A very sweet, spicy blend with harmonious tannins and noteworthy length. Year after year, this wine from Michel Rolland is a terrific value. Drinking window: 2015-2022. Score – 91.
