WineScores' Review

Buoyant, purity, transparent.
Harvested from silt and glacial rock and gravel soils in Kaleden, Skaha Lake near Penticton), the organic Cabernet Franc grapes were destemmed and fermented in clay amphorae and large oak vessels. After 8-months on skins the parts were pressed off and blended before being placed in concrete to settle.

White pepper, red cherry and red current aromas are muddled with faint notes of cocoa, cedar, tobacco, wet stone and a splash of mint. Like the nose, the palate shows purity; expressive red fruit is the game here. Medium-bodied and buoyant, balanced and transparent. An approachable wine with seamless tannins.

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.
