WineScores' Review

Sensuous, unique, affluent.
Wines like this make me happy, there really are not enough of them available in our market. The Taleiga hails from the inland Dao region and is made from from a blend of indigenous Portuguese varieties: Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Tinta-Roriz, Jaen. Its affluent aromas of spiced plums, black current jam, cherry twizzler, baking spices and toffee liqueur are echoed on the palate. Sweet and generous purple fruits are layered with licorice, clove and vanilla pod flavours. A sensuous palate is followed by a lengthy finish trailing charred cocoa nibs and coffee.
Pair hearty rustic meat or bean stews, spaghetti Bolognese or grilled portobello mushrooms.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Canadian Chedder & Chive

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”.
