A Weekend Wine

Clos de Los Siete

The weekend is creeping up pretty quick here, which means it's time to start thinking about what you might be enjoying alongside a nice relaxing dinner this weekend.

There's always great value to be had when shopping in South America, and the Clos de Los Siete is a fine example under twenty bucks. Fairly widely distributed, you should be able to find this almost anywhere. However if you can find the 2006 edition it should be great to drink now.

Adrian reviewed this back in October 2008 on Reading for New Times:

The 2006 release of Clos de Los Siete is a blend of 50% Malbec, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah overseen by Michel Rolland, a prominent and famous consulting oenologist from France who is known for fruit forward wines with influences of oak.

Maybe next weekend will be warm enough to crack open a chilled chardonnay. 😉
