WineScores' Review

Harmonious, fragrant, generous.
Made from grapes grow in Lujan de Cuyo and Maipu in Mendoza province, this outstanding Malbec was aged 12 months in new French oak barrels and delivers pretty aromas of sweet black raspberry, smoked cedar chips, vanilla, licorice, mocha, patchouli and dried roses. Generous purple fruits are layered with brown spice, tealeaf and earthy flavours.
Powerful yet elegant, harmonious and persistent but definitely some heat on the finish. Loads of life left on this wine even with five years on it.

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”.
