Cheap wine for the weekend

Cheap wine for the weekend

Here at Daily Dish, we like a glass of expensive Italian barolo as much as anyone, but casual weekend sipping can be a more affordable and equally delicious venture. In his recent column for Toronto Life, our resident wine expert, David Lawrason, extols the virtues of Argentine malbec: juicy, fruity and cheap. With plenty of options at the nearest LCBO, Lawrason has found 11 bottles (the majority are under $15) to try.

His favourite of the bunch is the Pascual Toso 2007 Malbec, $12.95:


“Get ready to be charmed. This friendly malbec combines the grape’s natural floral and plummy-raspberry fruitiness with vanilla, mocha and gentle smokiness from the barrels. This Pascual Toso is smooth and packed with flavour and fine tannin—perhaps even a touch sweet for Euro-trained palates. Very good length. Now to 2011. LCBO 35170”
