WineDiva's Review

Savoury, chew spiced.
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, the Calliope leads with dusty plums and blackberry, wet brick, burlap, and charred spices with sooty undertones. There is a lack of fruit expression in the mouth, it's mostly earthy and sooty with cedar, tobacco and a hint of wild red berry. Medium-bodied it has distincly savoury undertones and a chewy finish.
An everyday dinner red for BBQ, hearty pastas, pizza, grilled eggplant or mushrooms.

Who is Wine Diva?
WineDiva is my alter ego. 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 my very serious passion for all things wine. It is my goal to make wine fun, to make this website subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs beware, this WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and making it her own! Care to join me?
