WineScores' Review

Complete, succulent, woven.
Harvested from the preeminent To Kalon Vineyard, which rests behind the Mondavi winery in Oakville, this superb red saw extended maceration and was moved into all new French oak barriques for a secondary fermentation, then aged 20 months before blending into the final wine. It was bottled in August of 2017 and aged again in bottle.
It has a rich, complex and serious nose: black currents and blueberries, brown spices, dried herbs and salted, smoked meat aromas are defined. It's a complete wine, fresh and balanced, succulent and deftly woven. Generous bordering on opulent with a long, chocolaty 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”.
