WineScores' Review

Restrained, savoury, structure.
Made from Shiraz grown in McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Barossa and aged in (partially new) larger American oak barrels.
Aromas of charred spices and black fruits are layered with smoked meat, dark cocoa, tealeaf and at the core, a burst of tangier red fruits. It is restrained and has a brooding side, is still youthful and tightly wound but shows complexity and freshness, balance and structure. Decant if drinking now, or cellar for a few more years.

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”.
