Wine of the Week for June 22, 2009

Pascual Toso Malbec Rosé 2008 - $11.95
Style: Rosé

Well, summer has finally arrived, so let’s roll out the some seasonal refreshment. The colour on this one is a rich candy apple red -- rather dark by rosé standards. The nose is subtle, but yields up spice, apple skins and perfume. There's also an impression of hotness, which the label bears out: 13% alcohol. The palate is, therefore, substantial, with tree fruit flavours alongside berries and sour cherry. Very good body and a rich, zingy close. Powerful, with plenty of flavour, it would stand up to anything off the grill. (LCBO 122408)
