WineScores' Review

Fresh, smooth, spiced.
Cabernet Franc with a splash (4%) of Merlot grown on T7's estate vineyards in Osoyoos (Raju Vineyard) and Oliver (Sunshine Acres & Blue Terrace Vineyards) were aged in French and American oak (20% new) for 24 months before bottling.
Crushed red currents and sweet red bell pepper aromas mingle with pencil shavings, violets, carob and roasted green bell peppers rubbed with cracked black pepper. The fruit is lively in the mouth, it is smooth and fresh with black fruit flavours layered with cocoa, dried herbs, leather and oak spice.
Pair: Grilled eggplant ratatouille, grilled sausages, meat based pastas or creamy blue cheese.

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”.
