WineScores' Review

Consistent, excellent, finessed.
Made by Argentina's pioneering Malbec family, this wine comes from fruit harvested from prestigious Lujan de Cuyo, Tupungato, Maipu and San Carlos vineyards.
Boasting excellent consistency and intensity, this vintage offers that distinct Catena succulence; wild blackberries and red currents, dried violets, grilled herbs, tobacco, bitter chocolate and espresso. Equally savoury on the palate, it has a masculine character, impressive acidity and spice and mocha flavours followed by a long tealeaf finish. .
Pair: grilled meats, hard cheeses, hearty pastas or stews or rich mushroom gnocchi.

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”.
