95pt Clos de los Siete Red Blend Only $15.97 - WOW!
Here you go, a perfect reason to drink wine every night (not that you need a reason) just read below about this 95pt wine for $15.97. Clos de los Siete is a Bordeaux-inspired project in Argentina that is blended by Michel Rolland. He first visited Mendoza in the late 1980s and was immediately impressed by the potential that he saw there. After years of looking he and a group of friends—there were seven of them—hence the name, found the right site in the Vista subzone of the Uco Valley. Why? The high, 1000m elevation with its cool nights and ample sunshine in combination with the deep stony, gravelly soils that have just the right amount of clay are perfect for Bordeaux varietals. This is Argentina, so Malbec takes the lead in the blend with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and a splash of Syrah for good measure. Viticulture and vinification occur as they would in a great Bordeaux house, with a little less new oak. This has been one of the best buys from around the world for almost 20 years. Stay safe, stay healthy and drink well. Tim Alberdi Redneck Wine Crew
