WineScores' Review

Precise, woven, silky.
In the mountainous alpine north of Italy (influenced by the Dolomites and Alps), which borders Austria, the cool-climate Suditrol-Alto Adige produces small quantities of high quality wines.
This Pinot Noir (labelled for both languages--Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder) shows classic pinosity; small wild berries and cocoa, tealeaf, vanilla, cherries soaked in star anise and mixed fine spice. Silky, with a woven palate that is both balanced and precise, it's a lovely wine that deserves a slight chill before service.

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”.
