WineScores' Review

Meaty, savoury, smoky.
This organic Malbec hails from vineyards 3000-3900 feet above sea level.
It is undoubtedly savoury and earthy style; smoked spices, bacon fat, black pepper and leather, roasted herbs, fleur de sel and tar, with a good dose of wildberry flavours. It's a leaner style and again, the raw smoky and meaty character comes through in full force on the palate. Nice brightness in the mouth gives a needed lift.
Pair: roasted or grilled meats, hearty tomato-based pastas mushroom dishes.

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”.
