WineScores' Review

Complete, supple, enjoyable.
The primary source of grapes for the Max come from the Errazuriz Aconcagua Valley estate, 90 km north of Santiago. It was aged in French oak (30% new) for 12 months for the purpose of malolactic fermentation and ageing.
Expect classic cassis and black raspberry, vanilla, pipe tobacco and brown spice aromas, which are woven with bay leaf, and shaved dark chocolate. The entry is supple, it's a well constructed and balanced wine offering wild berries, toasted spice and carob on the palate. Complete and enjoyable with notable persistence.
Second review: October 5, 2021
Opaque ruby colour with dominant cassis and raspberry aromas woven with licorice, baking spices, pencil shavings and tobacco. The palate is fresh and flavoured with espresso, cherry, powdery cooca and tobacco. It has a classic Cabernet character and fine tannins.

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”.
