WineScores' Review

Rustic, earthy, savoury.
A blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah with Carignan (25%) and Cinsault (9%) this classic earthy Languedoc rouge is a red that dives deep into the savoury spectrum with notes of toasted spice, pipe tobacco and charred meat underscored by blackberry, plum and dried violets. It has a fresh entry, grows textural mid-palate and delivers a muddle of wild berries, garrigue, grilling meat, dark cocoa and espresso flavours. It has a rustic character and is leans toward brooding but has good bones overall.
A wine for red meats, grilled mushrooms or eggplant and aged cheeses.

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”.
