WineScores' Review

Opulent, velvety, generous.
Durif (aka Petite Sirah) is the name commonly used in Australia. Here, Caymus presents their version, which is grown in the valley neighbouring Napa, and is located 40 minutes southeast of the winery. Suisun (SU-Soon) is a small valley AVA, with only about a dozen wineries, which has been producing wine since the mid-1800s.
If you want a wine that is fruity AF and blatantly opulent, this is your wine.
Velvety notes of blueberry pie, melted chocolate and raspberry jam are layered with star anise, vanilla and cinnamon. Almost thick enough to stand a spoon up in, it's boldly flavoured with full-throttle purple fruit, pipe tobacco and chocolate.
This wine brings it.

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”.
