WineScores' Review

A buy-it-by-the-case gem, consistent and delicious.
This Garnacha packs a lot of oomph into each bottle - it oozes plush raspberry and blueberry jam aromas with chocolate, cola spices, sarsaparilla and rose petals. A supple palate lends itself well to generous berry flavours wrapped in mocha, floral and blueberry tea. It is fresh and smooth and gulp-able.
A wine for most grilled foods or game day fare but also for pizza, red sauced pasta and more traditional tapas

Second Review
Delicious, value, approachable.Aromas of raspberry, vanilla, mocha, a bouquet of roses and violets, baking spices and licorice. The palate is supple and engaging with loads of sweet fruit, leather, mocha, sweet spice and licorice to match the nose. Good length, approachable and balanced. You won't go wrong serving this awesome value wine to a crowd at a BBQ.
Pair: grilled or roasted meats, sauteed sweet red peppers with chili and olive oil, rich tomato sauces and hard cheeses.

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”.
