WineScores' Review

Succulent, tangy, stylish.

Continuing to impress, the JoieFarm Pinot Noirs stand tall, not just as a representation of BC, either. This vintage offers cherry and cranberry, star anise and spice rub and bacon fat, forest floor, tealeaf and succulent umami undertones. It has a chewiness on the palate entry, which becomes silkier mid-palate. It is lifted with tangy red fruit and simultaneously grounded with bacon, cocoa, and tobacco flavours. Well-woven, classic, stylish and also serious.
Pair: wild mushrooms, fresh salmon, duck, turkey and roasted fall vegetables such as pumpkin, sweet potato and roasted beets.

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”.
