WineScores' Review

Complex, excellent, complete. Located in the sub-GI of Okanagan Falls, Stag's Hollow celebrated 25 years in 2020. The fifth edition of their premium estate red called Cachet is a blend of 47% Syrah, 33% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Viognier grown on their estate Stag's Hollow Vineyard in Okanagan Falls and the Amalia Vineyard in Osoyoos. After a secondary fermentation the wine was matured in components in one large 500L French barrel and two French barriques for 18 months then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
It's a complete wine, plush and complex, that offers warm fruitcake and black raspberry jam aromas layered with vanilla, star anise, rose petals after the rain atop of carob and coffee bean. The palate is succulent, seamless and mouthfilling. Blackberry seeds, cocoa, baking spice and pipe tobacco are underscored by generous fruit.
Excellent.
I reviewed this wine after it had been open for 24 hours and feel that time allowed to it breathe nicely. Decant if drinking now.t.

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.
