WineScores' Review

Some days (especially in the winter) I think there's just not enough decadent single varietal Petit Verdot around. Australia handles it well and here is a tasty example. It's a fruit-bomb (no denying) with blueberry, black raspberry, chocolate, vanilla and savoury toasted spice. It's chewy and full in the mouth. Flavours of sweet purple and black fruit are layered with brown spice, and roasted coffee beans.
A wine for grilled beef, roast and mature cheeses.

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”.
