WineScores' Review

Stylish, fresh, engaging.
Founded in 1995, Stag's Hollow resides withing the boundaries of the Okanagan Falls sub-GI and produces an exciting range of well constructed wines.
The estate Amalia Vineyard is located in South Okanagan on the West Bench in Osoyoos and it produces this consistently wonderful Syrah.
After fermentation it was pressed into French oak barrels (35% new). After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for an additional 15 months on fine lees before being blended together and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Notes of white pepper and smoked paprika are melded with crushed cherry and fresh red berries, cocoa, coffee and bacon fat. It's a medium-bodied wine with elegance and refinement; flavours of forest berries, fine peppery spices, salami and cocoa dominate the palate. Bouncy and engaging.

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”.
