WineScores' Review

Stautesque, elegant, complex.
Clos du Soleil's flagship estate red is made from Similkameen grown Cabernet Sauvignon (38%), Merlot (29%), Cabernet Franc (21%), Malbec (9%) and Petit Verdot (3%). It was matured 15 months in French oak barrels before bottling and additional ageing.
Expect an elegant and complex red with kirsch and dusty mint, currents, graphite and baking spices, licorice and tobacco aromas. It is supple and has generous fruit. A statuesque red, well-constructed, with balance and persistence.

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.
