WineScores' Review

Unique, edgy, savoury.
Portugal's varieties, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz are blended with Syrah to make this interesting and unique wine from Lisboa region's Obidos DOC.
Formed by gentle hills, Lisboa wine region extends from the capital of Portugal to the north along the coast in a range not exceeding 40 km in width. The climate is temperate with Atlantic influences, a relatively mild summer; it is cooler and wetter in the areas closer to the sea, warmer and drier inland in areas protected by Montejunto mountain.
Grapey aromas are underscored by black currents and roasted coffee, smoked meat and peppery spices, chocolate covered plums and wild herbs.
The palate is where the rustic really takes root, fresh and savoury with an edgy meaty side, it provides a good amount of sweet dark fruit and toasted spice 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”.
