WineScores' Review

Juicy, value, perfumed.
While this wine has always been awesome value, the 2019 vintage is the best yet. It is intensely perfumed with violets and sweet black raspberries, vanilla, baking spices and cedar with vague meaty/bacon fat undertones. The attack is juicy, high-toned purple berry flavours are melded with oak spice and vanilla flavours. Smooth and very quaffable.
Pair: hearty stews, roasted mushrooms and hard cheeses.
Second review: August 2020
Raspberries, blackberries and spiced plums, dark chocolate and espresso, roasted herbs and purple floral aromas lead to a supple palate with strong savoury overtones. Good balance here and the finish is smooth and medium-length.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Blue Cheese & Cracked Pepper

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”.
