Overview

Mauricio Lorca Gran Opalo Blend 2009 (6 x 750mL), Valle de Uco, Argentina.

94 Pts. Robert Parker

Grape Variety: 50% Malbec, 30% Syrah and 20% Petit Verdot

Tasting Notes: Attractive and intense red colour with violet hints. A wine that shows a great combination between the three varietals that make up the blend. Its nose is an explosion of red fruits combined with spicy notes and a touch of leather. With a very good structure, it has the sweetness and soft tannins typical of Malbec, but also the strength of the Syrah and Petit Verdot. Very long and elegant finish. Excellent wine to accompany strong cheeses, elegant food (rice, pastry, meat), baked meats (pepper, smoked) and smoked vegetables. It is ideal for desserts with chocolate, dried fruit and mascarpone.
