WineScores' Review

This Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Mourvedre blend never fails to delight.
It offers typical Southern Rhone value; it's a generous and thoughtful wine that combines the charm of the Old World and satisfying fruit of the New World.
The aromas here are sweet raspberry and cherry, mocha and vanilla, leather and garrigue underscored by peppery spices and lifted with notes of wildflowers. It is supple and thoroughly enjoyable - a perfect amalgamation of fruit and earthiness. Lovely depth and good length with roasted espresso, bittersweet cocoa and pepper on the finish. A 10-minute chill-down the fridge will benefit this wine and make it even more enjoyable.

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”.
