James Suckling, 92 Points

"A generous Mendoza red with fragrant plum and chocolate aromas, lots of freshness and a very satisfying balance of sweet fruit and tannins, making this very appealing already. Drink or hold."

About the Wine:

Made from 100% estate grown fruit. Grapes are harvested from the Barrancas Vineyard in the Maipú, region of Mendoza. Maceration is conducted over two days at 46.4° F. The wine is seeded with selected yeasts and ferments at 77- 82.4° F for 10 days. To finish this process, after malolactic fermentation, 100% of the wine is aged in American oak for eight months. It remains in bottle four months prior to release date.

Pair With: Red meats, lamb, pasta and fine fermented cheeses

About the Producer:

"When in the mid 1880s Pascual Toso set out towards Argentina from its home town, Canale D’Alba, in Piamonte, Italy, he could not have imagined that he would become the founder of a winery, which is today one of the oldest and most prestigious wineries in Argentina.

When he arrived in Argentina, he settled in Mendoza. As he had been closely involved in the development of his family wine business in Piedmont, he promptly saw the promising future for winemaking in the region and decided to use his expertise. Thus, in 1890, Pascual Toso established his first winery in San José, Guaymallén.

At the beginning of the 20th century, he decided to expand his business and acquired vineyards in Maipú. At his estate “Las Barrancas”, he built another winery, “Las Barrancas” (small Canyon) which is dedicated to producing and growing the finest grapes.

In 2001, the Bodega hired as winemaker consultant to Mr. Paul Hobbs for a new high quality wine project. He has been working head to head with our chief winemaker, Rolando Luppino, on the development of premium and super-premium wines. Today, Pascual Toso still makes wines of high quality under the most exigent procedures and rules. The Trophy for Best Argentine Producer awarded by the IWSC (London) in 2007 reflects this commitment to quality."
