WineScores' Review

Classic, balanced, fragrant.
Chateau St. Jean was a family winery established in 1973 in Sonoma. Made to be an acsessible red, this one was blended from sites on the North and Central Coasts and it was aged in French and American oak for 8 months before bottling.
Plum pudding and cassis, dark chocolate and espresso, toasted spice and pencil shavings are lifted with a whiff of mint. Supple on the entry it delivers generous purple fruit, savoury spices, leather, vanilla and mint flavours. Good posture ad balance but also very approachable.

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”.
