WineScores' Review

Savoury, spicy, fresh.
This Bordeaux-blend of (88%) Merlot, (1%) Cabernet Franc and (11%) Cabernet Sauvignon is made from estate and Okanagan fruit--this vintage's cuvee varies a lot from last vintage with much more Merlot and much less Cabernet Sauvignon.
Expect aromas cedar shavings and tomato leaf, black currents and dried tobacco, roasted meat, brown spice, graphite and cocoa dusted plums. It's medium+ bodied and delivers fresh wild red and black berries along with sage and espresso, toasted spice and tobacco.


 
Recommended Pairings
Rich Meats , Barbeque, Cheese - Semi Hard / Medium

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.
