WineScores' Review

Pastiche, luxurious, succulent.
Formerly the Oldfield Series the new nomenclature of this range is Oldfield Reserve, the label colour has also morphed to a warm taupe-brown (no image available). Along with the Merlot as its key component, there is 15% Cabernet Franc.
This vintage of the reserve Merlot is a pastiche of plums muddled with black cherry, star anise and mocha, dried roses and botanical, cedar chips and leather. Generous, luxurious and chocolaty it is mouthfilling and succulent. Great balance and equally chic.
Pair: beef, lamb, hearty pastas, stews.

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”.
