WineScores' Review

Significant, supple, savoury.
Made from Syrah and Merlot with a splash each of Malbec and Viognier, the Seventy-four K is named for the distance you would cover if you lined up all of Road 13's vines end-to-end and walked alongside them.
It is a significant and complete wine, which provides aromas of wild berries, dried plums, sunbaked earth, brown spices, bacon fat, grilled herbs, carob and peppery spices. The fruit is more dominant in the mouth; juicy and sweet forest berries, baking spices, chocolate and pipe tobacco flavours roll in. It has a generous palate with a supple weight and long finish.

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”.
