WineScores' Review

Meaty, intense, savoury.
Made from 70% Syrah, 24% Malbec and a splash each of Viognier and Gamay.
Savoury is the word of the day with this bottle, it punches out wild black fruit muddled with tar/iodine, smoked brisket, spice rub, mocha, dried sage, saddle leather and bacon fat. Equally intense and, meaty, on the the palate; espresso, toasted spices, char and bittersweet cocoa, which hauls across the finish. Good brightness keeps this extracted wine from excessive broodiness. If you like big wines and big slabs of grilled beef, this is your lucky day.
Pair: grilled foods, hard cheeses, robust dishes or stews.

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”.
