WineScores' Review

Substantial, succulent, toasted.
The 2013 version of this wine is comprised of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, 6% Malbe and 3% Petit Verdot.
It is consistently a supple and substantial wine; ripe blackberry, black cherries, dried lilacs, sweet baking spices notes and cedar chips, lead the nose. The palate is succulent and smooth, and meaty and toasted, with dusty black fruit flavours and a potent bittersweet finish. It is quite mouthfilling and this year I sense more oak on the palate.
Pair: grilled steaks, robust stews, game dishes or hard 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”.
