WineScores' Review


Argentine Malbec continues to seduce consumers on both price and full-on flavour. Alamos is made by the Catena family, who have been Malbec pioneers in Mendoza for more than 110 years.
It's a solid balance of sweet and savoury. Expect aromas of blackberries and black cherries, espresso and licorice with toasted spices and hints of tea leaf. It enters the palate with juicy berry flavours and rolls into dark chocolate mocha, sarsaparilla and peppery spices. Expect lovely balance and freshness with a supple weight and good persistence.
Recommended pairings: grilled meats and grilled vegetables and hearty pastas

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.

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
