Wine Advocate: "The lineup starts with the 2007 Malbec, forty percent of which was aged in American oak for 10 months. It reveals an alluring nose of black cherry and blueberry leading to a grapy, smooth-textured, forward wine with tons of flavor. Drink this crowd-pleaser over the next three years. It is an awesome value." (Dec. 2008)
Wine Spectator: "Fresh and open, with a mix of raspberry and black cherry fruit followed by a modest dose of toast on the easygoing finish. Drink now." (11/08)
The read more...new 2007 Pascual Toso Malbec is as good as ever. It offers a bit more aromatic complexity than the 2006, with an inviting nose of sweet blackberries, vanilla and mocha, hiding a core of white pepper, violet and cassis. Fleshy and ripe with a bursting mid-palate of juicy cherry, black currant and pie crust, this is completely enjoyable and instantly drinkable, showing the hand of consulting winemaker, Paul Hobbs.
Decanter(2005 Vintage) Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Fresh cassis and raspberry jam aroma. Medium bodied, nicely balanced, spicy yet fruit driven, nice weight and length. Drink up to 2011.
