WineScores' Review

Silky, woven, generous. Harvested from Dona Paula's estate in Gualtallary (at 1,350 meters [almost 4,430 ft] above sea level) the Uco Valley's Tupungato, it's a terroir with cool climate and mineral, rocky alluvial soils.
This is an outstanding Malbec, which has a plush nose laden with wild black and red berries, toasted spices and coffee, dried violets and tobacco with undertones of black chocolate and coconut husk. It's a powerful wine but the entry is silky; it is woven and has wonderful balance. It's a generous wine with a lengthy finish.
Pair with hard cheeses, roasted mushrooms or grilled meats.


Pairs great with Gone Crackers Parmesan & Rosemary

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
