WineScores' Review

Succulent, youthful, leather.
Formerly known as Michel Torino 'Cuma', this newly labeled Malbec still offers great value, but no longer offers a specific region, from where it is grown.
An interesting assemblage of aromas; hops, moist earth, leather and dark roast espresso, smoked paprika and cola spices lead to a watery palate with fine cocoa and spices. Very youthful, but good acidity, and a bitter finish.

Second Review: April 2017
I received a second bottle of this wine and my review was substantially different, which makes me wonder abut bottle variation. In the second bottle: Purple fruit, raspberry, rich mocha, toasted sweet spices, licorice and violets. The palate was fresh with vanilla, mocha and ripe berries in chocolate. Juicy and quite complete - approachable.

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”.
