WineScores' Review

Plush, approachable, fragrant.
Always plush and fragrant, the 2019 version of the Wente family's estate Cabernet Sauvignon does not disappoint. Aromas of vanilla, cassis, licorice, candied violets, chocolate and pencil shavings are brightened with fresh minty undertones. It's an approachable and satisfying red with a supple entry and expressive, mouthfilling fruit underscored by cardamom, cinnamon, star anise, mocha and mint. A tasty modern red with lovely freshness to pair with chili dogs, burgers, spicy wings or sausage.

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”.
