Pascual Toso Malbec, 2006
We bought this Argentinean Malbec at Costco in Scottsdale, AZ, this past week. We were down there for a 10 day vacation and we were looking for a few wines to drink throughout the week. We found this Malbec to be a real winner. The color was a lovely dark ruby with some purple highlights. On the nose was black plum, earth and some smoky leather. This wine was a great marriage of old world meats new world. In the mouth it is a big wine with a mixture of nice dark berry and plum along with dusty tobacco and sage. The finish was long and refined. We drank this wine with a grilled flat-iron steak and a Caesar salad while sitting out at pool side at our Scottsdale condo. It was a perfect night with good food, good wine and good friends. We will be looking for more of this Malbec in the Seattle area. We paid about $8-9 dollars for this lovely Malbec from Pascual Toso. Nice job.
