WineScores' Review

Bold, succulent, value.
The Alamos wines are made by the highly respected Catena (Catena Zapata) family of Mendoza. The 2019 vintage Cabernet was aged 6-9 months in one-to two-year-old French and American oak and is boldly scented with spicy red fruits, espresso, cracked pepper, dried herbs, tobacco and seasoning salts. That salinity emerges on the palate alongside high-toned red fruits, smoked meat and brown spices. It's supple and balanced, a wine made for BBQ.
Pair:: Grilled steak or lamb and grilled or roasted vegetables.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Canadian Chedder & Chive

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”.
