WineScores' Review

Weight, power, persistence.
Formed in 1985 by 80 grapegrowers, Barossa Valley Estate (BVE) continues to produce outstanding Barossa Valley wines. This iconic red is made from carefully selected parcels in the region and already has significant age on it.
Redolent in blackberry jam, mint, a potpourri of cedar chips and dried violets, licorice, pepper, cocoa and brown spice aromas. The palate offers similar black raspberry, dark mocha and mixed spices. It has a significant glycerol weight and power with integrated tannins and expected persistence.
Drinking well now.

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”.
