Pascual Toso Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
Elegant style, with lovely boysenberry and raspberry fruit, and plenty of vanilla, spice and chocolate shadings too. Lengthy, focused finish. All these notes give elegance and complexity to the wine. Very sweet but consistent tannins.
Coconut and dill aromas rise from the nose, and they are surrounded by berry, cassis and floral scents. The palate is tight, honest and a little hard, with middle-of-the-road berry flavors tinged with herbs. There’s size and power to this wine, but also balance. Compared to previous years, it’s a little less generous but still a good way to go.
Polished and inviting, with mocha, melted licorice, date bread, plum and raspberry flavors that glide through the full-bodied finish. Drink now through 2010.
