WineScores' Review

Fragrant, alluring, value.
This aged red is a blend of Tempranillo (80%) and Garnacha that was matured 12 months in American oak before bottling and receiving additional years in bottle. It's impressively youthful despite its age; alluring aromas of strawberry compote, vanilla and licorice, cherries and roses makes for a fragrant sniff. On the palate, dried strawberries, tealeaf and fine spice flavours lounge on a fresh but thoughtful palate. Great value, and a wine to pair with Spanish cheeses and tomato-based dishes.

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”.
