WineScores' Review

Tangy, straightforward, texture.
A blend of Merlot, Syrah, Malbec and Petit Verdot this always approachable red expresses sweet and spiced aromas of red plums and currants, star anise, chocolate and espresso. It has texture and freshness with cocoa, tangy red fruit and tobacco flavours. Straightforward and medium-bodied with a slight sharpness to the nose and palate.
Pair: Burgers (meat or vegetarian), grilled meats, roasted mushrooms or eggplant.

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
