WineScores' Review

September 2013 marked the 30th anniversary of this wine being sold in Canada. You'll notice a new label (with that 30th anniversary nod) on this Canuck favourite.
It has always been a dependable everyday red for grilled meats, burgers, chili or watching the game. Aromas of black currents, black cherry jam, sarsaparilla, baking spices are lifted with minty/eucalyptus notes. It is supple in the mouth with appealing freshness to lift the chocolaty, spicy, black fruit and coffee flavours. The finish is smooth and spicy.

Second Review: June 2015:
Ripe and chocolaty, peppery spices, eucalyptus very ripe cassis notes and licorice on the nose. The palate is similarly ripe - almost dried fruit alongside fruitcake, with coffee and chocolate. The acidity keep it from being bottom-heavy but it is certainly not as fresh as previously tasted.

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”.
