WineScores' Review

Succulent, muscular, balanced.
I think this wine perfectly illustrates the potential of Syrah in BC - this vintage it is both classic and succulent.
The nose is especially pungent; notes of bacon fat and smoked brown spices, leather and espresso, toasted oak and bittersweet cocoa reveal a core of wild black berries. On the palate however, the fruit leads the charge; black berries, smoked meat, dark mocha and savoury spice flavours appear. It has a spicy and muscular countenance but bright acidity adds levity.

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”.
