WineScores' Review

Cherry, supple, licorice.
The definition of pandiculation is lazy stretching (like a after a nap).
This Shiraz with 15% Grenache is a tasty drop.
The two varieties were vinified separately. Fermentation took place in closed fermenters and was followed by a maceration period of 14 days after primary fermentation. The Shiraz was matured separately in French oak for 18 months. The Grenache was left unoaked to preserve its natural fruit character. Malolactic fermentation took place in the barrels.
Cherry cola and plums, chocolate, licorice, vanilla and pipe tobacco aromas lead to a textured palate. It has a supple weight with oak and skin tannins. Straightforward and juicy it has a dark cocoa and espresso finish.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper

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”.
