WineScores' Review

Textural, modern, jammy.
This BC blend is finished in whisky barrels, which I take to mean it is aged for a short amount of time in old whisky barrels to add some of those characteristics and complexities to the finished wine.
It's a modern international style with sweet aromas of mocha and purple berries, vanilla, licorice and baking spices. It has some texture on the palate, jammy fruit and dusty tannins. The structure and acidity saves it from being too blousy.

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”.
