WineScores' Review

This certified organic, Fair Trade and vegan red is a blend of South Africa's (often unfairly maligned) Pinotage variety and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Earthy and meaty, this blend offers up aromas of spice, bacon fat, iodine, wild forest berries, cocoa and plummy undertones. The palate offers good substance with savoury salty flavours, wild fruits, licorice and cocoa. Textural tannins add chew, it has good substance and a juicy finish.
A good everyday dinner wine with roasted meats, game, hard cheeses, hearty bean casseroles.
New review: August 2017

Attractively scented with black raspberry, cocoa, black currents, vanilla and sweet spice, atop a more savoury core f tar, grilled bell peppers and leather. The palate is supple with very good fruit expression; it is juicy, slightly textural and has solid structure. Overall, good value!

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”.
