WineScores' Review

Value, classic, bright.
Grapes for this Malbec (blended with 4% Cabernet) are grown on an estate vineyard in the region of Agrelo, which rests at 950 meters above sea level, and planted roughly 60 kilometers from Mendoza city.
Like most others from Mendoza, this wine offers good value.
The nose offers classic espresso and dark chocolate, peppery spices, licorice and is lifted with wild berries and dried cherries. It is supple and spicy, approachable, with a silky texture. Bright acidity adds levity to charry flavours, which are underscored by bitter chocolate, toast, dark espresso.

A simplistic red, with a notably warm finish. Suited to hearty stews or soups, hard cheeses or dense protein dishes.

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”.
