WineScores' Review

Sweet, fragrant, generous
The entire Escorihuela 1884 series has seen a facelift, the new label is more elegant, but not a huge departure from previous vintages.
The Syrah is always a favourite in the lineup and it stays true to that in the 2019. Sweet black raspberry and vanilla, licorice root and violets, plush chocolate and vague salty undertones are expressed on the nose. It has a jubilant palate, fleshy sweet berries, hints of white pepper and mocha. It's still youthful, so there are some edges, but overall it's a balanced wine with notable concentration.
A solid partner for game meats, roasted wild mushrooms, aged cheeses and cheese fondue.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper

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”.
