Clos de los Siete 2006 Wine Review (NW)
Concentrated nose of dark berries, black currant, and coffee
Dark, rich core of fruit and herbs
Finishes with heavy tannins accenting dark chocolate and herbs
Just arrived! I stopped in for a bottle of the 2005 and the 2006 was already in the bin. After one glass, I've decided it's not as good as the prior year. It has deep, dark fruit, coffee, and herbs, but finishes with heavy tannins that are distracting and mouth-puckering.
Still, I enjoyed the wine because I was in the mood for a dark, rich South American red. In this case, it's a wine from Argentina put together by Michel Rolland and a group of others. I paid $14 on sale, marked down from $15. Raise a glass!
