WINE SPECTATOR – NOVEMBER 2017

The Calling 2013 Our Tribute – 90 POINTS
Presents a charming, structured medley of red and dark berry flavors, casting a juicy mouthfeel and a firm tannic backbone. Ends with dusty, loamy earth and cedary oak notes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028. –JL

Clos de los Siete 2014 – 88 POINTS
This offers good cut to the savory flavors of dried beef, berry and red currant, showing zesty minerality. Sun-dried tomato accents emerge on the finish. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2019. –KM

WINE ADVOCATE – DECEMBER 2017

Clos de los Siete 2014 – 89 POINTS
Tasting multiple vintages of the same wine side by side is the best way to see the differences, so having this 2014 Clos de los Siete next to the 2013 confirms that the vintage was riper and warmer. The fruit tends more towards the black/darker/riper side of the spectrum and there are some heady and earthy notes, without the purity of the 2013. Having said that, the palate is soft and caressing, with fine-grained tannins, more in need of food than the previous year. The varietal breakup in this occasion was 54% Malbec, 18% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 3 % Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. – LG

JAMES SUCKLING – NOVEMBER 2017

Clos de los Siete 2014 – 93 POINTS
A rich and dense red with lots of juicy fruit that delivers chocolate and spice. Full body, round and flavorful. This becomes more refined and focused each year. – JS
