WineScores' Review


The formerly-known-as Twisted Tree, has undergone a momentous overhaul with dark yet intriguing paper-cut labels created by New York-based artist Andrea Dezso. Deszo's work has been exhibited at several museums and galleries worldwide as well as two subway stations in NYC.
Rarely known outside of Madiran, France (also now found in Uruguay, Europe and North America in small amounts), the rather meaty and tannic Tannat actually shines in this blend with Syrah.
It is impressively rich and chocolaty on the nose with plums and kirsch, purple flowers and some undertones of wild herbs. It is a broad and mouth filling wine with a chewy texture that is followed by a long, bittersweet cocoa and espresso 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”.
