WineScores' Review

Fragrant, savoury, distinct.
What used to be the Oldfield Series, is now Oldfield Reserve
It comes with a new label look, and the change (label colour/design and name) is not depicted in the attached photo.
Cabernet Franc is one of Tinhorn's flagship wines, and new winemaker Andrew Windsor (since 2014) has continued Sandra Oldfield's work, continuously striving to make it better.
Expect fragrant aromas of blueberry compote, wild currents, violets and woodsy aromas alongside mocha, cherry cola and dried sage. The palate is savoury; fleur de sel and dried herbs, peppery spices and dark mocha flavours roll into distinct tealeaf notes. Overall, structure and balance are rooted firmly in this wine, and it has a lengthy finish.
Pair:hearty pastas with tomato ragu, game meats or bean chili.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Blue Cheese & Cracked Pepper

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”.
