WineScores' Review

Toasty, spicy, blackberry.
Aromas of toasted oak, spices, black cherry and blackberry compote, leather, vanilla, mocha and licorice lead to a spicy/peppery and toasty palate. Good overall structure and brightness with cocoa and spice trailing on the finish. Solid BC offering on the Malbec front.
Pair: Grilled meats, robust stews and mushroom and cheese based dishes.

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”.
