WineScores' Review

Chocolate, pepper, espresso.
A nose dominated by toasted oak, dried herbs, leather, peppery spices, dark roasted coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate wrapped tightly around a core of black fruit. The palate leads with sweet blackberries and plum but is similarly dominated by oak. A wine, which needs the dense protein of beef or hard cheeses to soften some of the firm but ripe tannic structure.

Second Review
Smoked plums, blackberries, dark chocolate and espresso, dried herbs, smoked bell peppers and spice rub. The palate is similarly spiced, meaty and savoury. It has very good structure and balanced acidity to keep it from being brooding. Supple texture and good length. A wine for meat or hard cheeses.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Parmesan & Rosemary

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”.
