WineScores' Review

Savoury, muscular, supple
Falling under the umbrella of Jackson Family Wines, this considerable red comes from sites on the North Coast that rest between 400 and 2400ft above sea level on a massive estate alongside the Mayacamas; Stonestreet specializes in Cabernet and Chardonnay and was established in the late 80s.
Aged 18 months in barrel (37% new French oak) it has a true Bordelais character exhibiting aromas of mix of dried herbs and mixed olives, marmite and grilled plums, black currents and brown spices. The entry is supple and it has a muscular structure with savoury salty flavours mixed with spiced mocha.

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”.
