Pascual Toso Malbec Rose 2008
Well this is not Salmon....or Pink. This wine is Bloody Strawberry Fruit Punch, I mean its so dark I think it would pass for a Claret of the 18th Century. But well Nose/Taste it could pass for a Fruity Burgundy? hmmm maybe we shall seeee
Malbec Rose 2008
Dark Strawberry Jam, A Red Fruit Punch Colour. Dark no other way to put it
Now this is where it gets interesting, a Wine that is a rose in sight yet on the nose it has that old world nose close to a Pinot Noir, I mean all signs point to Pinot Noir if you could not see the wine.
Starts off with the Strawberry / Rhubarb notes when slightly Chilled really nice acidity, But once it starts to warm and open it up it move into a Creamy Rich Mouth Feel big/full. And then it reminds me of a Pinot Noir its the craziest thing, I mean there are aspects that do and aspects that you know this is a Rose. But mm interesting and heck for 15.99 canadian its like a good cheap Pinot Noir! hah can't go wrong
Score: 89 I think that the fact it has those notes of Pinot Noir it gets that 89 Points, tho in reality it isn't "Overly" complex I mean don't get me wrong this is a great rose.
