WineScores' Review

This estate grown Syrah expresses what BC can do with Syrah.
It was aged 16 months in French, American and Russian oak and offers aromas of blackberries, cracked black pepper, plum, black cherries in dark chocolate, espresso, leather and hints of licorice. The palate shows its more succulent side with black fruit and loads of black pepper, dried herbs, toasted spices and bittersweet mocha atop savoury spice rub and smoked meats.
It's a gutsy wine, chewy, meaty and concentrated with very good balance.

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”.
