WineScores' Review

Silky, classic, balanced.
Made from grapes grown in the Thacker Drive Vineyard in West Kelowna and it was aged in French oak for 11 months and 50 cases were produced.
It's a pale rusty red colour with notes of mixed spice and fine white pepper, red cherry, rhubarb and red currents along with vague floral notes and cedar. It has good bones and resembles Old World versions. Silky and balanced it has tangy red fruit, forest floor, tealeaf and leather flavours.

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”.
