WineScores' Review

Succulent, spicy, muscular.
The little brother to Le Grand Vin is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec & Petit Verdot.
Consistently savoury, this vintage seems to be more lifted; it offers dried herbs and a combination of sweet and peppery spices, tealeaf and cedar chips, violets, vanilla and wild berries on the nose. Supple on the entry it has espresso, dark chocolate, tobacco and roasted meat flavours that lead to a long and fresh finish.
Pair: Grilled or roasted meats, stews, puy lentils with savoury herbs, aged hard cheeses.

Second review: November 19, 2020.
Spices muddled with black cherry and currents, sage and dusty earth, tobacco, espresso and bittersweet cocoa dominate the nose. It has a chewiness on the palate with black fruit, espresso, dark chocolate and brown spices. Muscular but fresh.

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
