WineScores' Review

Supple, juicy, satisfying.
Not long ago, I visited Bodega Beronia in Rioja and learned a bit more about this consistent red made in the sustainable Beronia vineyards in Alto Rioja.
It is dominated by the region's variety, Tempranillo but has a splash each of other indigenous varieties, Graciano and Mazuelo. As a reserva, it has been aged more than 18 months in American and French oak then another 20 months in bottle, this wine has had some time to come together.
Morello cherry, licorice root, mocha and violets are layered with strawberry preserves, chocolate and baking spice aromas. It is supple in the mouth with great balance and impressive acidity. Overall good balance and structure with flavours of sarsaparilla and cocoa.
Pair: stewed meats, slow roasted vegetables and hearty tapas.

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”.
