Wine of the Week for July 16, 2007

Trapiche Malbec-Cabernet Rosé 2006 - $9.15
Style: Rosé

This brilliant candy-apple pink summer offering shows spicy citrus and red berries with a trace of pine. The refreshing palate is dominated by strawberry accompanied by a light spritz and a crisp close. Light, easy and pure refreshment. (LCBO 36426)

Worth Looking For

Pascual Toso Malbec 2004 - $12.95
Style: R2

Quantities are limited on this one, so if you see a bottle on the shelf, grab it. The nose shows lush aromas of spice, damp wood, and dark berry mash, with touch of plum. Soft, smooth and round on the palate with a firm acid core, silky smooth tannins, and loads of berry and plum flavours. Body and length are both quite good. If you're feeling adventurous, put a few bottles away for a couple of years. (LCBO 35170)
