Post subject:  Clos de los Siete 2011

Current vintage of this is 2014, available at Sainsbury's & Waitrose ~£16

The 2011 still feels a bit of a keeper. Consumed over 4 days and despite being 6yrs post vintage, this showed best on day 4.
Deep rich bramble fruit which still feels quite primary on opening. A majority of the blend is Malbec (56% Malbec, 14% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Syrah, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot) but the syrah fruit felt like it showed though more than its 12% contribution.
A bit more complexity showed with time but think it will benefit from developing another few years in bottle.

Worth picking up during the 25% off deals and holding for a few years
