WineScores' Review

From the South Okanagan and made from estate grown Malbec grapes.
Having just returned from Argentina, I sampled (and enjoyed) a lot of rose made from the Malbec variety.
This one is a deep cranberry shade with aromas of cherries, rhubarb, peppery spice, dried herbs/garrigue, raspberry seeds and dried flowers. It has some good structure; it leans dry but still exhibits some sweetness. The acidity is good and makes the red wild berry and toasted spice flavours pop. There is the slightest impression of tannin on the dry finish.
If you are looking for a rose to pair with grilled or barbecued foods and heartier fare, this is the one.

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”.
