WineScores' Review

Decadent, extravagant, muscular.
This decadent blend of Malbec with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Syrah doles out extravagant notes of sarsaparilla, mocha, purple berries and leather with a bouquet of rose petals and violets. That fragrant quality is passed onto the palate; generous fruit, supple weight, szechuan peppercorns, rich mocha and leather. It is quite muscular but fresh, the tannins are chewy but polished and is has a long slick finish.
President Juan Peron and his wife Evita were fond of one of Escorihuela's red blends in the 1940s; this wine pays homage to that era with its hefty bottle and powerful character.

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”.
