WineScores' Review

Charming, fresh, elegance.
Made from vines over 20-years-old, which are grown on clay, loam and rock soils, the Blue Grouse Pinot Noir shows its island roots. Soon you'll be seeing these estate grown wines under the newly appointed Cowichan Valley sub-GI, the newest of these sub-zones in the province.
Pretty aromas of violets, cherries and wild berries, vanilla, star anise and cocoa lead to a textural palate with juicy red fruit and earthy flavours mingled with fine spice. It has Old World charm and understated elegance.

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”.
