WineScores' Review

Supple, approachable, fragrant.
Always engaging and fragrant, the 2020 version of the Wente family's estate Cabernet Sauvignon stays true.
Bold cassis and Kirsch, vanilla and baking spice aromas are underscored by purple flowers, licorice and pipe tobacco. It's a smooth mouth-filling wine that is seamless and tasty. Generous fruit flavours are woven with spice and vanilla and it has nice persistence.
A tasty modern red with notable freshness to pair with chili dogs, burgers, spicy wings or sausage.


Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper

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.
