WineScores' Review


Classic spicy red cherry aromas wrapped in leather, roasted coffee beans, red plum, sunbaked earth, wild herbs and toasted oak. The palate is fresh with appealing rustic charm. Nice balance here, plenty of juicy red fruit with fine toasted spiec andetobacco trailing on the finish.
Pairs with slow cooked meats or hearty tomato sauces.

Second review:
Great typicity here with smoked red cherries, saddle leather, strawberry, grilled herbs and cedar with layers of fine spice. The palate is fresh and juicy, it is medium-bodied with red berry fruit, leather, herbs, tobacco and spice to echo the nose. Fine chalky tannins and well balanced acidity in a rustic package.
A perfect foil for Italian dishes and any tomato based pastas or pizza.

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.
