WineScores' Review

Complete, complete, woven.
This Malbec has a new look and it hails from old vines planted at 960masl on the Andes Ridge in the province of Mendoza.
Notes of sweet cedar chips and cherry brandy and woven with vanilla, chocolate shavings, pipe tobacco and savoury spices. It has a silky entry is complex and balanced with bold black fruit and spice.
Postured and complete, it's a wine with substance.
Pair: grilled or roasted meats, mushroom and thyme stuffed ravioli, hard cheeses.

Second Review: February 2021
Attractive aromas of chocolate cherries, blackberries and dried violets atop vanilla, licorice and cardamom. Silky on the tongue it has a supple weight and sweet smooth tannins. Lovely balance here with an extended finish trailing cocoa and leather flavours.

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”.
