WineScores' Review

Organic, earthy, fresh.
Bles is the name of an indigenous plant encouraged to grow between the rows of vines near the Mediterranean Sea in Valencia. An organic blend of Monastrell, Tempranillo and Cabernet is delivers notes of sweet red cherries, licorice and dried roses, vanilla, orange peel, cinnamon and marzipan. The entry is smooth and fresh but the palate is earthier than the nose; cocoa, spice and dusty red fruit flavours lead to a tealeaf flavoured finish with chalky tannins.

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”.
