WineScores' Review

Savoury, juicy, honest
This organic blend of Grenache, Syrah and Merlot is made in the 16th century Chateau de Caraguilhes, which was once part of a Cistercian abbey located near Carcasonne.
Savoury and rustic, it delivers aromas of tangy red fruits, garrigue, leather, tobacco and pencil shavings. The palate is juicy and earthy; with bright red berries, spice, cocoa, tealeaf and earth. It's an honest wine, and best suited to food.
Pair: game meats, aged and crumbly cheeses, hearty eggplant dishes.

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”.
