WineScores' Review

Concentrated, supple, delicious.
This Southern Rhone blend of Syrah with Grenache is a consistently delicious red, vintage after vintage; it's freshness is due to fermentation and aging (8 months) in stainless steel vats.
The 2018 expresses black raspberry, cherry twizzler, vanilla, fennel, mocha and cola spice aromas. Sweet berry flavours mimic the nose along with spice and licorice. Great concentration, opulent yet fresh with a bit of texture on the finish.
Classic French Mediterranean cuisine, stuffed veg, aged cheeses, slow roasted meats and hearty tomato based sauces pair well.
Second Review: December 2020
Black raspberries and cherry, vanilla, licorice, baking spices and sweet mocha aromas float atop earth and garrigue notes. Supple with expressive fruit, spice and pipe tobacco flavours it has lovely concentration and balance. A consistently enjoyable 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”.
