WineScores' Review

Jam, smooth, juicy.
The Santo Cristo co-operative is a winery with vineyards around the village of Ainzon in the heart of the Camp de Borja DO. Vines have been cultivated there since the Middle Ages, they belonged to the nearby large monastery of Veruela. The Santo Cristo co-op was founded in 1956, and is now one of the most modern in Spain.
As is typical, joven (young) wines are made to be fresh, they see no oak and are meant to be consumed early. This one, made from old vine (around 40-years) Garnacha is already showing its age with aromas of strawberry jam, licorice, vanilla, dried cherries, soy sauce and molasses. Smooth on the tongue it has juicy acidity and cocoa tannins. Easy to drink, but drink now.

Recommended Pairings
Barbeque, Cheese - Semi Hard / Medium , Tomatoes and Tomato Sauces

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”.
