WineScores' Review

Meaty, savoury wild.
A duo classic to the Northern Rhone Valley, Syrah and Viognier are traditionally a field blend where up to 20% might be the aromatic white Viognier variety.
It's a wild ride of blackberry, raspberry and plums with dark chocolate and smoked spices and raw salted meat. It is equally intense in the mouth, meaty and savoury char-grilled meat and dried herbs. Masculine and hearty with dusty tannins clinging to the finish.
As the French would say, it's sauvage.

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”.
