WineScores' Review

Under VSPT (Vina San Pedro Tarapaca) there are several labels and six Chilean and two Argentine wineries. They are the second largest wine exporter in Chile (Gato Negro accounts for the vast quantity of that) and in the top three fine wine producers in the country. The first winery, San Pedro was established in 1865, which the label of the same name plays homage to.
From the Cachapoal Valley - Andes, directly south of Santiago, this top tier blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carmenere (72/18/4/3/3%) is exceptional.
A complex weave of salty and sweet, pretty and powerful it offers purple berries, cedar chips, espresso and dried violets atop smoked meat and brown spice. The palate is juicy yet concentrated, generous and complete with plenty of aging potential.

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”.
