WineScores' Review

Velvety, woven, concentrated.
This velvety blend of Grenache and Mourvedre doles out appealing notes of wild black berries and black plums, savoury spiced, garrigue and fine white pepper with undertones of concord grapes. It's deftly woven, fresh and savoury with concentration and balance. Flavours of dark sun-warmed fruit are layered with spice, tobacco and coffee. The finish is long, the tannins smooth.

New review: April 2021
Velvety aromas of wild black berries and plums are layered with concord grapes, garrigue, fine spices and black pepper. It is fresh and balanced, woven and savoury. Black sunwarmed fruit flavours meld with peppery spice and earth. Concentrated, smooth and lengthy.

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”.
