WineScores' Review

Fragrant, generous, textural.
Of this old vine Garnacha and its sibling, the Garnacha and Syrah blend, this one is the stand-out.
Exceedingly aromatic, it doles out fragrant blueberry, raspberry and cherry twizzlers aromas layered with coconut, exptic spices, chocolate, vanilla and licorice. It is generous on the palate with textural tannins to bit into. Chocolate covered blueberries, sarsaparilla, fine spice and chocolate flavours abound in the mouth.

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”.
