WineScores' Review

Supple, generous, fresh.
Santa Julia is owned by the Zucchardi family, although the label no longer bears their name.
It's a fleshy and modern organic Malbec presenting sweet black raspberry and sarsaparilla aromas layered with pipe tobacco, mocha and wildflowers. It is supple in weight, has a generosity of fruit and a spicy and chocolaty finish. Approachable, smooth and fresh; an everyday drinking red.


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&rdq
