WineScores' Review

Seductive, complex, youthful.
Made from Cabernet grown in McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Barossa, Coonawarra and Wrattonbully and aged in (partially new) larger French and American oak barrels.
Expect seductive and plush aromas of black raspberry and cassis, vanilla, pipe tobacco, crushed flowers, Asian spices and licorice. It doles out sweet purple fruit and spice flavours; is supple and fresh but still youthful and wound up. Lovely complexity, depth and posture but decant if drinking now, or cellar for a few more years.

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”.
