Wine Find: 2008 Clos de la Siete

March 10, 2010|By Michael Dresser | Baltimore Sun reporter

From: Mendoza, Argentina
Price: $19
Serve with: Beef, lamb, game

This robust red from Argentina represents the handiwork of Michel Rolland, one of the star performers in Bordeaux, France, and an apostle of big, meaty, no-holds-barred wines, of which this is one. A blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah and petit verdot, it floods the palate with rustic, intense flavor. A young, unfiltered wine with a firm tannic backbone, it would reward those with the patience to cellar it for several years. It will be on store shelves soon.
