Mauricio Lorca Gran Poetico Blend 2007 (6 x 750mL), Argentina

93 Pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 'The 2007 Gran Lorca Poetico is a special cluster selection: a blend of 70% Malbec, 20% Syrah and 10% Petit Verdot aged for 12 months in French and American oak. The nose is very expressive; the oak neatly enmeshed with the vibrant black cherry, Dorset plum and black olive aromas that are very well-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline note on the entry and indeed, there is something reminiscent of the sea throughout this wine. It is very crisp and taut with black fruit that sings on the finish. Excellent.'

Grape Variety: 70% Malbec, 20% Syrah and 10% Petit Verdot

Tasting Notes: Deep-red colour. Complexity of aromas, with blackberries, cherries and chocolate prominent, along with spicy and vanilla tones. Overwhelming in mouth with good balance between oak and fruit. Wonderful structure, elegant and persistent finish. Excellent wine to accompany all types of cheese. Also pairs well with red meat (roast, smoked, game meat), pastry and spicy rice (with pepper and curry). Good accompaniment to chocolate, dry fruits and dairy desserts.
