There was a little more ripeness and concentration in the 2017 Clos de Los Siete, a harmonious and nicely crafted blend of 52% Malbec, 21% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. When tasted next to the 2016, this came through as more powerful, and many might prefer it, but I found better quality of tannins in the 2016, as this felt a little harsh in comparison, but nothing that one more year in bottle and/or powerful food couldn't fix. 790,000 bottles produced.

95 pts James Suckling

A very refined, creamy wine, showing blackberries and blueberries with chocolate and light hazelnut notes. Medium to full body. The fine tannins are polished and creamy and the beautiful, reserved finish goes on for a really long time. Wow! Best ever, because of its length and beauty. One for the palate or the cellar. Drink or hold.

91 pts Wine Spectator

Deep, rich flavors of roasted cherry, plum tart and dried savory herbs are supported by firm acidity and tannins. Features a tensile frame, with slate accents midpalate. Dusty graphite notes show on the finish. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2024. 650,000 cases made, 22,400 cases imported.
