WineScores' Review

Plush, generous, supple.
A superb Syrah from the south of France La Croix Belle is all about freshness; only a small portion was aged briefly in oak, to add complexity. It delivers plush notes of plums soaked in vanilla, fine white pepper, star anise, cherries dipped in warm chocolate, coffee and orange blossoms. Decadent generous purple fruit, earth and coffee flavours dominate the palate; it's supple and fleshy with a fresh lengthy 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”.
