WineScores' Review

Muscular, balanced, supple .
Chocalan's flagship wine is Maipo blend dominated by Cabernet Franc (75%) along with Merlot, Cab Sauv and Petit Verdot.
Sweet mashed cherries and salted licorice, mint, red currents, saddle leather and chocolate aromas lead to a supple palate entry that is muscular and still quite tightly wound. Chocolate dusted fruit and toasted brown spice flavours lead the charge. The tannins are chalky, the finish reserved but the balance is all in check.
Definitely give this wine some time to develop; a couple years or longer.
*Not currently available in BC.

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”.
