WineScores' Review

Consistent, juicy, savoury.
Capitalizing on the notable "coffee" aromas and flavours commonly associated with Pinotage, The Grinder hits it out of the ballpark with this fun, quirky label.
It is a consistent libation--expect sweet purple and red berries, vanilla, licorice, baking spices and coffee mocha. The palate echos the nose with sweet red and purple fruit, peppery spices and a smidge of concord grape flavours. Medium-bodied, it has a warm finish that trails tobacco and coffee flavours.
Pair: grilled meats, smoked pork or hearty mole chili.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Canadian Chedder & Chive

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”.
