WineScores' Review

Value, classic, savoury.
Grapes for this Malbec are grown on an estate vineyard in the region of Agrelo, which rests at 950 meters above sea level, and planted roughly 60 kilometers from Mendoza city.
Like most others from Mendoza, this inky-ruby hued wine offers good value and delivers spice, wild berries, dried herbs, coffee grounds and bacon fat aromas. Supple on the entry it is medium-full bodied with distinct salty and savoury flavours culminating in a spiced cocoa finish. Smooth and balanced and approachable.
A straightforward red for hearty stews or soups, hard cheeses, pizzas or meat and hearty pastas.

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”.
