WineScores' Review

Fresh, supple, fruity
The Kruger family established Wile Goose Vineyards in Okanagan Falls in 1984, and since 2021 has been owned by Burrowing Owl Vineyards in Oliver. The Red Horizon is Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot and Included for the first time in 2020 is Dunkelfelder, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. All the grapes were harvested from vineyards in Oliver and Osoyoos. The components were vinified and barrel-aged separately for 16 months, in 25% French and 75% American oak, afterward they were assembled into the blend. The wine was then bottled and left to mature further before release.
It has an initially very fruity nose which includes concord grapes and blackberry, cherry cola, vanilla, baking spices and warm chocolate aromas. It's fresh and supple, approachable with a plush weight and a more textural finish trailing tobacco and spice 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”.
