WineScores' Review

Silky, classic, beautiful.
Located in Chile's far northern semi-arid winegrowing region known as Elqui Valley, Falernia makes a wide selection of fresh and succulent red and white wines.
This single vineyard, Aaron (named after the winemaker's son) is located 18km from the Pacific Ocean and planted on rocky soils.
Notes of beet greens and charred herbs are layered with sour cherry and rhubarb, forest floor, leather and toasted spices. The palate is the clincher; silky and elegant it delivers sweet red fruit that caresses the tongue. Beautifully woven and balanced, it's a pretty and persistent Pinot.

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”.
