2012 Pascual Toso Malbec Maipu Valley
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Malbec has clean, shiny notes of raspberry and red currant, and a fresh, balanced palate. Very pleasant. Drink now. (LG)
This wine continues to over-deliver in the quality to price ratio, or QPR department (please excuse the industry jargon). Back again is the smooth, fleshiness, the bright red cherry fruit, hint of ripe blueberry and a touch of earthy smoke. This wine seems to gain in definition and structure with each vintage. This is not only a well-made example of Argentine Malbec, but an exceptional value in red wine overall. Partially aged in American oak for depth and complexity, this is ready to be enjoyed tonight with anything from barbecued steak to pasta.
