WineScores' Review

This single vineyard Terroir Series comes from a site in the high Uco Valley, sitting at 1300 m.a.s.l and like its name suggests, it is ambrosial. Fragrant cedar chips and dried violets create a potpourri of aromas; purple fruit, charred licorice root, bacon fat and baking spices round out the nose. It is big and bold, spicy and meaty. Lively acidity balances the lingering chewy tannins and the finish is extensive, trailing bittersweet cocoa.
A wine for grilled meats, hearty stews, or roasted mushroom sauces.

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”.
