Mauricio Lorca Inspirado, Blend 2008, one of the top superstar

Mauricio Lorca Inspirado blend 2008, By Bodega & Viñedos Mauricio Lorca, USD 75

A signature wine blend of Malbec, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon from Vistaflores district in Uco Valley (Tunuyan Departament), Mendoza.
Simply astonishing and complete. Everything is there, you name it. The best virtue is that you may say every fruit from each other, from red cherries and raspberries to black plum, blackcherries and blueberries. A nice spicy note with some black and green peppercorn and a minty toach too. Complex and not overexpressed oak. Same attractiveness as Cobos malbec but more complex and fleshy and a little less bright red carpet dressing stuff. A 98 point red blend that may gather more terciary notes next few years. One of the top superstar. Six to 8 y/o of cellar may bring the best.
