WineScores' Review

You could say that the Clark & Telephone is the most masculine of the four single vineyard Pinot Noirs that Joe Wagner makes under the Belle Glos label. The vineyards are: Las Alturas (planted high in the Santa Lucia highlands), Taylor Lane (close to the ocean and resulting fog on the coast) and this Clark & Telephone in Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara. The newest edition is the Dairyman Vineyard Pinot Noir, which hails from Russian River, also very near the Pacific Ocean.
Luscious fruit dominates - juicy cherry and black raspberry aromas tango with rose petals and violets harnessed to a core of fine spice, rainforest floor, cedar, cocoa and star anise. It is silky and plush with sweet and supple fruit yet it has firmness in its structure. Lovely acidity keeps it fresh and the finish is both persistent and generous.

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”.
