WineScores' Review


The leader of the pack. No wonder it's the No.1 selling California wine in BC, it was the first of a strong trend of sweeter red blends, laden with supple texture, gobs of fruit and chocolate.
This gothic labeled California red blend includes Zinfandel, Syrah and Merlot.
It is what you would expect, a plush fruit-forward red with chocolate covered cherries and berries (blueberry, raspberry), cola spices, sweet coffee, licorice and vanilla. It is straightforward, supple, sweet and spicy - entirely quaffable with burgers, chili, spicy ribs or pan pizza.

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
