WineScores' Review

Delicious, complete, generous.
This classic Grand Classique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc offers excellent consistency but this 2016 really stands out. Velvety aromas of black raspberries, cassis, vanilla, licorice, cola spices and purple flowers lead to a palate that is supple with generous fruit. Plush black fruit, exotic spices, and mocha, which trail across the finish. Balanced and delicious with silky tannins this is a complete wine, delicious to drink, and utterly pleasing.
Pair: Smoked eggplant, grilled meats, aged cheeses, hearty stews and pastas.

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”.
