Uncork This - Clos de Siete 2007 Red Wine Mendoza (Argentina)
Possibly the best value from Argentina today, this luscious red blend has malbec, merlot, syrah and cabernet. Crafted by legendary winemaker Michel Rolland and it tastes like it. Rich and jammy with loads of fruit and flavor like soft leather, blackberry, blueberry, candied cherry, bittersweet chocolate, sweet vanilla and coffee. Simply stunning for the price. Sw=1. $16. 5 stars. Available at Hinton's Wine Shop 8455 Holcomb Bridge Road, Alpharetta, GA 30022 (770-641-1900).
