WineScores' Review

Fresh, chewy, savoury.
IMO Tannat in Argentina is much more approachable (softer tannins and more fruit expression) than those of its birthplace, in south west France.
This interpretation features notes of cherry flambe, orange peel, charred carob, grilled plus, leather, white pepper and espresso liqueur. It's a fleshy red with loads of underlying spice along with dark chocolate and grilled sausage. It has a distinct chewiness and will pair well with rich meats, grilled veg, hard cheeses, roasted mushrooms and spaghetti with bolognese.

Old image, label has changed.

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”.
