WineScores' Review

Value, fresh, savoury.
The oops Spicy Splendor is made entirely from an old Bordeaux variety that's been famously embraced and championed by Chile; Carmenere.
Priced with great value in mind it offers notes of dried violets and roses, purple berries, charred cedar, grilled red peppers, peppercorn, chocolate and roasted herbs. The palate is fresh with oodles of tangy red berries, cocoa and toasted spice.
A great weekday dinner red with roasted veggies, hearty stews and soups or grilled meats.
Second review: November 2023
Expect fresh notes of cherry and chocolate, leather and licorice, dried flowers and brown spices. The palate echos the nose. it's fresh and smooth and easy drinking. Expressive berry flavours are layered with coffee chocolate and a hint of bacon fat. A pleasing and affordable weekday red.

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”.
