WineScores' Review

Exceptional, pretty, fresh.
Exceptional value for a wine aged 7 years (now 10 according to my math), and a best seller in our market.
It doles out strawberry confiture and dried rose petals with distinct grape-y notes alongside licorice. It is dry and earthy yet pretty, with juicy red berry flavours. Great balance and freshness, an honest wine with notable length.

Reserva wines in DO Valdepenas must undergo a minimum aging period of 36 months, at least 12 of which are spent in oak barrels with a maximum capacity of 330 liters, and the remaining time in the bottle.

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”.
