WineScores' Review

Seamless, woven, juicy.
Without doubt, Michael Bartier is one of British Columbia's most talented and humble winemakers. He makes honest wines and trusts the site and the fruit to dictate the wine. This first release GSM Grenache (44%), Syrah (36%), Mourvedre (20%) was aged 14 months in 225L French oak barrels.
It's an extroverted wine, evocative of Southern Rhone blends similar to this one; expect sunwarmed cherries and licorice root, strawberries and toasted spice, roasted coffee beans and finely ground white pepper aromas. Juicy red fruit sprinkled with white pepper, salted Dutch licorice, leather and tobacco flavours are woven on a seamless palate. Medium-bodied and truly enjoyable--a wonderful new addition to the portfolio.

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”.
