WineScores' Review

Value, fragrant, fresh.
Made in the Western Cape by Alsatian flying winemaker, Julien Schaal who produces wine twice a year--once in his home of Alsace and again in South Africa.
Chocolate cherries and vanilla, red plum and licorice with brown spices and sweet chocolaty undertones.
Chalky cocoa tannins rest on the palate along with red fruits, fresh earth and peppery spices. It has a modern/classic Shiraz character and notable acidity.
A perfect weekday red priced with value in mind.

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”.
