WineScores' Review

Opulent, supple, chocolaty.
GSM is the acronym for Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro (AKA Mourvedre).
The Strapper is an opulent character, kirsch and menthol, mocha and sarsaparilla, with undertones of mulberry tea. The palate is spicy and chocolaty and minty-fresh. Great balance, a supple demeanor, and fine textural tannins to add substance.

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”.
