It’s been a while since we’ve covered a wine, largely due to an injury to my right arm, but we’re back (mind you I am still typing slowly), and what better way to get back into the game than by covering a Malbec, specifically Pascual Toso’s Limited Edition Malbec 2011.
We first encountered Pascual Toso’s Malbec at a Malbec tasting event and at the time, even after tasting 20 wines before it, the solid makeup of this Malbec was noticeable and given this, we were happy to have the opportunity to review it with an actual planned pairing.
On colour, Pascual Toso’s Limited Edition Malbec 2011 holds a garnet red hue. On the nose, scents of cherry, oak, and light spice can be noted. On the palate, tastes of peppercorn, cherry, tobacco, and red berries are present.
To best enjoy this wine, I would suggest serving it at 17 degrees celsius. At the right temperature, your pairing options grow. We paired our Pascual Toso Limited Edition Malbec with grilled chicken, served in a spiced sauce and salad ladened with radish, and this goes to show the pairing extent of this wine.
This wine retails for at the LCBO for $15.99
We gave this wine a score of 3.25 out of 5.
