Tomero Gran Reserva Malbec is the quintessential Malbec from Mendoza Argentina.
Tomero Gran Reserva Malbec
“The Tomero Gran Reserva Malbec is Muscular with broad raspberry, currant and crushed plum flavours backed by dark toast and mocha notes. The long finish lets liquorice and fig notes linger.” James Molesworth – Wine Spectator Insider
“Robust, deep and candied on the nose, with rooty richness, medicinal notes and complexity. The palate is smooth, meaty, healthy and suave, with lush black fruit, prune and earthy flavors. Long, likable and showing a lot of depth and structure.” Michael Schachner – Wine Enthusiast
