2011 Tomero 'Reserva' Petite Verdot

$24.95

This big dog is on the prowl and looking for dinner. Beastly black fruits, cola, milk chocolate, smoked plums, minerals and spiced vanilla-infused tannins roar with delight in this serious mouthful of purple juice. A giant cowboy steak off the grill and some chimichurri sauce will tame the monster's appetite… seriously, if this doesn't get your tongue tingling, red wine may not be your thing.

Tomero is a winery owned by the Pulenta family, a force in Argentinian winemaking for three generations. This area of the Uco Valley, to the south of Mendoza, is irrigated by a series of deep channels that crisscross the land. Many years ago, the "Tomero" was the worker responsible for opening and closing the gates to these irrigation channels carrying water down from the Andes.

Vines in this region face harsh winters and warm summers with mild days and very cold nights. The vines are planted in a rocky, sandy loam with medium to low fertility, and good drainage.

Alejandro Canovas is the winemaker at Tomero, and he also oversees enology at the Pulentas' other estates, such as Vistalba. Tomero makes Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Pinot Noir.
