WineScores' Review

Muscular, silky, restraint.
Bacon fat dripping on charcoal briquettes, toasted brown spices and tobacco, rainforest floor, and a muddle of dried violets and wild red berries best describes the nose on this wine. It is a more muscular style yet has a silky entry -- then dry powdery tannins kick in mid-palate and cling through the finish. There is a lot of restraint and compression on the palate still; the tannins still hold great influence.
I would recommend decanting now, or holding this wine for a few years more.
Pair: Grilled wild salmon, roast beef, slow cooked beef brisket or a caramelized onion and wild mushroom pizza.
The new label on this wine is not depicted in the attached photo.

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”.
