Bodega Diamandes is one of the Clos de los Siete wineries based in the Uco Valley and is one of the newer and unknown bodegas in the group. We were happy to have them join us for our winemaker night and share this wine that has not yet even been released to the market! Like all of the Clos wineries, we were impressed by the terroir and expression of flavors found in the wine!

Uco Valley Gran Reserva 2006
Tasting Notes: Some earthy notes, minerals, black fruit, blackcurrant and some oak on the nose, full-bodied, still young and monolithic but with a good structure and length, fine potential.
