WineScores' Review

Savoury, concentrated, organic.
Covert Farms is a 650-acre fourth-generation, family-owned organic farm and winery estate located just north of Oliver.
The Amicitia is a Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Syrah blend that leads with notes of toasted spice, charred cherries and black currents then delves into spice, vanilla, smoked meat, mocha and plumcake.The entry is supple with notable fruit expression. Full-bodied and slightly brooding, it's a concentrated red with lifted freshness and chalky tannins; the finish trails dark cocoa, ash and coffee.

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”.
