94 James Suckling
This shows aromas of ripe blackberries and blueberries, vanilla, licorice, dark chocolate and sweet tobacco. Hints of nut shell, too. Medium-to full-bodied with fine, polished tannins and a sleek, silky texture. Juicy, with delicious fruit on the palate and notes of walnuts and chocolate to close. Firm, flavorful finish.

91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Clos de Los Siete comes from a very good, ripe and complete vintage. The wine is 50% Malbec, 24% Merlot, 11% Syrah, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot with similar alcohol as other years (14.5%) but with less ripeness sensation. It's floral, aromatic, expressive and showy, juicy, fresh and balanced, tasty, with full flavors and round tannins. Seventy percent of the wine matured in 225-liter French barriques, one-third new, for 11 months. Best after 2022. Rating 91+

90 Decanter
Perfumed and aromatic with a brooding dark fruit nose, velvet tannins and graceful oak to the palate. Blend: 50% Malbec, 24% Merlot, 11% Syrah.

90 Wine Spectator
Roasted plum and cherry flavors show a loamy and coffee bean underpinning, with suave tannins and touches of graphite, fresh tobacco and pepper on the finish. Malbec, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

With a bright purplish-red color, Clos de los Siete 2019 presents intense, seductive aromas, with lots of freshness and light spicy notes. The dry, cool weather enabled a good concentration of tannins as well as a pleasant acidity, giving the blend a fine structure. The palate is elegant and silky, with notes of red fruit and a hint of minerality. A very expressive wine with excellent potential for cellaring.
