WineScores' Review

Velvety, fragrant, brooding.
Moon Curser is a boutique Osoyoos-based winery is known to produce a unique assortment of varietals rarely seen in the Okanagan Valley. Wines like this 100% Petit Verdot (generally a blending variety). It was aged in a mix of new and neutral French oak barriques. Expect a velvety nose of blueberries, black raspberries and chocolate, licorice, vanilla, pipe tobacco and baking spices. The entry is supple, the tannins take charge and it has notable earthy undertones. Less fruity than the nose suggests, the palate is definitely more brooding. The finish is smoky.

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.
