Their Malbec is a benchmark of the section for its supple, juicy red and dark fruits. A classic Malbec for a very attractive price. The 2014 vintage has not yet been professionally reviewed, but the 2013 bottling garnered 90 points from James Suckling.

This is one of best values, and best selling malbec's ever! Juicy, dark fruits, vanilla and a very light hint of baking spices. Soft and supple, with very mild tannins. It ever scores highly with the critics!
Top Value!

This value-driven Malbec shows notes of dark fruit, plum and mocha. This is the perfect party wine in that it's incredibly approachable, inexpensive and pairs with a broad array of foods. It also works just fine as a post-work libation!

Our perennial best selling Malbec is back! 2014 was a cooler vintage, though as usual the Pascual Toso shows lovely, juicy fruit and fine overall balance. Round, supple and easy to drink.

The new vintage of one of my all-time favorite red wines is in, and it is just as good. Malbec has been, and continues to remain even as I get to try more and more wines, one of my top go-to varietals for red wine. I have been drinking Pascual Toso for the last few years and it has never disappointed me. The 2014 vintage has everything I love in a Malbec: dark, juicy fruit with just the right balance of acid, spice and light tannin on the finish. This wine is so super drinkable and goes with almost everything I cook. Especially as the nights are getting colder, this wine is becoming more of a staple in my house.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Malbec

- These days if you're drinking a Malbec it's probably from Argentina. The most planted grape in that country, varietally-labeled Argentine Malbecs are one of the wine market's great values, prized for their slight herbal component and dark, luscious fruit. Structurally, Argentina's Malbecs are much different than those grown in the grape's native France; they are riper, fruitier and fleshier. In France, the best iterations of Malbec can be found in the Cahors, where it can be quite decadent. It is also planted in the Loire Valley, where it is called Côt and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Gamay, and in Bordeaux, where it has fallen from favor in many of the region's great blends because it is difficult to grow. In the United States, the varietal is frequently added to Meritage wines - Bordeaux style blends - but it is rarely found on its own.
Country:

Argentina

- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
