WineScores' Review

Crowd-pleaser, sweet, exuberant.
Candor refers to the noun, to be frank or honest and that is what the producers of this wine say they strive for.
It's pretty much exactly what you'd expect from an exuberant Lodi Zin; spiced briary berries, chocolate covered cherries, espresso, salted licorice and molasses. It has a supple and sweet fruity palate and plush weight. Full-bodied and generous it weighs in at 14.5% alcohol.
It's s definitive crowd-pleaser that is ended with 11% Merlot, and aged in French and American oak; the grapes come from five AVAs and it offers no vintage.

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”.
