WineScores' Review

Refined, levity, fragrant. This is certainly a conversation starter. If you've had a wine from Switzerland before, you're a small minority, mostly because their domestic market is so strong for their own wines, we rarely see them exported.
This Syrah shows its cooler-clime in its freshness. Notes of black cherry syrup, red plums, licorice, sweetened coffee, savoury spices and oodles of ground white pepper lead to a supple medium-bodied wine with coffee and caramel, cocoa and fine spice (white pepper notably) flavours. Refined with good levity and length, overall.

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”.
