WineScores' Review

Savoury, coffee, spicy.
The Border Vines is Moon Curser's Meritage or Bordeaux blend - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Carmenere, Malbec & Petit Verdot.
It always has a very savoury character and leads with aromas of figs and dried cherries, fruit cake and baking spices, coffee and licorice atop purple berries and a wallop of ground black pepper. The tannins are textural but fine; it is medium-full on the palate with great acidity and again, a savoury leaning on brooding character.
Decant before serving and pair with grilled meat, hearty lentil stews or aged, 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”.
