WineScores' Review

Generous, delicious, complete.
El Enemigo wines are made by Adrianna Catena (the youngest daughter of Nicolas Catena of Catena Zapata) and Alejandro Vigil (the chief winemaker of Bodega Catena Zapata). El Enemigo The Enemy refers to the back label quote, which appears to be from Dante, but I could find no solid reference: At the end of the journey, we remember only one battle: the one we fought against ourselves, the original enemy. The one that defined us.
Notes of blueberry and black raspberry, vanilla, licorice, cola spices rest atop a plush chocolaty undertone. It's a supple red with generous fruit to mimic the nose: raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, vanilla, chocolate and licorice followed by espresso on the finish. Delicious, balanced and complete--this is one to seek.

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”.
