WineScores' Review

Fresh, plummy, savoury.
This estate grown, low-yield and hand-picked Merlot was matured in French oak barrels (partially new).
It's a full-throttle savoury style; meaty and earthy it shows plums, mocha, bacon fat, leather and teleaf on the nose. The palate is a mimic of plummy flavours, which are woven with succulent spice and herbs. It is fresh and balanced with a persistent finish.

Recommended Pairings
Chocolate, Barbeque, First Date, Cheese - Soft/Creamy

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”.
