Overview Aside from this line of single-varietal wines, Pascual Toso produces some sparkling wines and a high-end line, Magdalena Toso, whose bottles are priced well above the cut-off for this guide. There’s also a Malbec rosé, whose color is a radioactive hot pink, not the pale salmon color one looks for in a rosé. We’ll stick with this repeat-winner Malbec—our blind tasters found it alternately fruity and earthy, and it’s easy to imagine drinking it with a juicy steak.

Nose One blind taster focused on its ripe, jammy fruit, while another found earth and tea leaves.

Mouth The fruit lingers into an impressively long finish.
