WineScores' Review

Plush, supple, generous.
A plush blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, that offers aromas of black cherry and licorice, vanilla, baking spices, chocolate, leather, wild berries and earth with undertones of mineral and lavender. It's a supple red, full-bodied and fresh with generous fruit expression along with leather and tobacco flavours. Grip, power and complexity; this wine has it all.
Second Review: November 2021
Relabeled 'An 806,' this reliable blend showcases the best of the GSM varieties grown in Corbieres' schist, limestone and pebble soils. Notes of licorice and vanilla, cherry cola and leather with sprinklings of white pepper. It's a woven palate, supple and earthy with a juicy character. Pepper, leather, dark cocoa, garrige and toasted spice flavours describe the palate. Classic.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper

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”.
