WineScores' Review

Generous, drinkable, value.
This blend of the Portuguese Castelao and Touriga Nacional varieties also has the addition of Syrah. It comes from the peninsula of Setubal, near Lisbon.
It offers amazing value and is both rustic and modern. Sweet and sweaty; plummy flavours are woven with bruised cherries, cocoa and sarsaparilla, dried rose petals and leather. There is generous sweet fruit on the palate; cherries and black raspberry, vanilla, baking spices and pipe tobacco. It's modern, bordering on jammy but is exceedingly drinkable.

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”.
