WineScores' Review

Inky, supple, fresh. An inky red with purple glints made from Grenache and Syrah.
Overall it's an earthy wine with attractive aromas of black plums and cherries, smoked brown spices, finely ground pepper, cocoa and garrigue. Savoury and intense with black fruit, espresso and bittersweet chocolate flavours layered with smoked meat. Supple and fresh and bordering on brooding; a good wine for grilled proteins, aged goat cheeses and hearty mushroom or bean dishes.
Available in BCLS July, 2020.

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”.
