WineScores' Review

Effusive, fresh, supple.
From one of Australia's 12 First Families of Wine, this Cabernet is grown in the northerly maritime sub-region of Wilyabrup.
Effusive sweet fruit dominates the nose, think damson plums, mulberry and currants alongside mint, fennel, vanilla, chocolate and toasted brown spice. It is supple and very fresh in the mouth; cassis, coffee, bittersweet cocoa are lifted with mint. Great balance, juicy and persistent.

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”.
