WineScores' Review

Both the name and the colourfully clad storyteller depicted on the label gives you a solid sense of the character of this wine. It doesn't disappoint; launching with plump black cherry, black current, vanilla liqueur and toasted spice aromas. The palate follows suit, offering plush black and purple fruit, baking spice and licorice flavours, which culminate in a chocolaty finish. It's full'bodied, has impressive intensity and a powdery texture.
A wine for barbecuing, hearty winter dishes or hard 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”.
