WineScores' Review

Brooding, savoury, muscular
Toro has been making headlines in recent years, mostly due to a small group of winemakers who have rediscovered the stunning old vines of this venerable region. Thankfully, their interest has reinvigorated the area and many of these gnarled old bush (gobelet) vineyards are being saved.
This Tempranillo is smoky and brooding with espresso, black fruits, iodine and bittersweet chocolate and roasted spices, a hint of patchouli rounds it out. It is fresh with a charry character; it is restrained yet muscular with notable bitterness, which makes it a good food pairing wine.
Pair roasted meats, hard cheeses, grilled eggplant and Portobello mushrooms.

Recommended Pairings

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”.
