WineScores' Review

Opulent, delicious, generous.
Opaque and intensely aromatic, this opulent red doles out mocha and black currents, espresso and vanilla, leather, molasses, chocolate covered cherries and a wash of refreshing mint. Profound character with generous fruit and spice it is mouthfilling and concentrated, lengthy and supple. A truly delicious wine with complexity but no attitude.

100% Cabernet picked, fermented and aged in mixed oak separately for 11 months before being blended and aged an additional 3 months in 75% new and 25% French oak one fill barrels.

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.
