WineScores' Review

Decadent, juicy, plush.
5G stands for five generations starting in 1870 and five generation of seeking the perfect Garnacha. Kudos, it's one of my favourite red varieties. The 5G stands for the five (cinco) lots the grapes for this wine were selected from. It's a decadent nose, with notes of blueberries and vanilla, rich chocolate and cedar chips and violets lead to sweet herbaceous Chartreuse undertones. It has a similar digestif liqueur quality on the palate; unique and seductive. Fennel, tealeaf, and wild berry flavours bolster the palate. It is lengthy and fresh with a dried cherry finish.

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”.
