WineScores' Review

Intense, approachable, inky.
Under the umbrella of the Wagner Family of Wines, Bonanza is made in the same style Chuck Wagner prefers, bold and rich with plenty of fruit, like his Caymus wines.
It's a robust version, inky and opaque with notes of chocolate and cassis, vanilla and baking cocoa with dried flowers, pipe tobacco and salted prunes. Smooth on the palate with powdery cocoa tannins and an almost brooding demeanor. Very easy to drink approachable and tasty with a long spicy finish.

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”.
