WineScores' Review

Pretty, fresh, woven.
Made from Tempranillo with 10% Garnacha and Mazuelo and Graciano grapes, this crianza was aged 13-14 months in American oak barrels and then additional time in bottle before release.
Attractive dried strawberry, cedar, iodine, rose petal and fine spices, leather and anise aromas lead to a classic palate. Smooth and earthy it has good concentration, persistence and freshness.
A pretty wine, evolved and woven.

Recommended Pairings
Cheese - Semi Hard / Medium , Good First Impressions, Tomatoes and Tomato Sauces

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”.
