WineScores' Review

Earthy, spiced, classic.
After malolactic fermentation, this estate grown Tempranillo was aged for an additional 20 months on fine lees before being racked, blended with a splash of Syrah (5%) and then bottled unfined and uniltered.
Wild cherries, mashed strawberry, sweet licorice, purple flowers, faint brown spice and finely ground pepper aromas lead to a juicy and dry palate with classic Tempranillo character and flavours of dark red fruit, spice and earth. It is medium-bodied with textural tannins.
A wine for tapas, Spanish cheeses, roasted tomato sauces, fatty meats and cured sausage.

Recommended Pairings
Cheese - Semi Hard / Medium , White Meat Chicken/Pork, Tomatoes and Tomato Sauces, Appetizers

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
