WineScores' Review

Stautesque, elegant, complex.
Clos du Soleil's flagship estate red is made from four Similkameen vineyards and the 2018 is comprised of: Cabernet Sauvignon (32%), Merlot (42%), Cabernet Franc (19%), Malbec (5%) and Petit Verdot (2%). The product of a warm growing season, the wine was aged 16 months in French oak barrels before bottling.
A classic claret red (dark red--no purplish undertones) it delivers white pepper and licorice root, black currents and cherry liqueur, dried tobacco, cinnamon and shaved bitter chocolate. There is a generous amount of fruit here it is supple and woven, no sharp angles or hollows on this wines, and it's wonderfully weighted across the tongue from start to finish. The finish is lengthy and spiced.
A statuesque and elegant wine.

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
