WineScores' Review

Elegant, succulent, balance.
Across the board, Black Hills' wines get better each vintage, this Syrah is no exception.
The aromas are expectedly spicy; black pepper, blackberries, plum, vanilla, mocha and violets atop succulent aromas of smoked meat, dried figs and molasses. The palate is as silky as the nose suggests; fresh wild forest fruit muddled with dried plum, smoked sausage, roasted spices, cocoa...
Overall excellent structure and balance - the freshness here adds levity. Pair: hard cheeses, wild mushroom ravioli, grilled meats, cheese fondue.

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 &ldquo
