WineScores' Review

Rustic, spicy, textural.
A blend of Syrah, Merlot and Carignan from the south of France it has the savoury and rustic character I come to expect from this area.
Wild berries and spice rub, bacon fat and vanilla aromas lead to a fresh palate of wild black and red berries, garrigue and spice. It is ripe, has textural tannins and a long grippy finish trailing cocoa flavours.

Recommended Pairings
Barbeque, Cheese - Hard/Aged, French Food

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”.
