WineScores' Review

Earthy, youthful, muscular.
Clos du Soleil's flagship estate red is made from four Similkameen vineyards and the 2020 is comprised of: Cabernet Sauvignon (33%), Merlot (34%), Cabernet Franc (21%), Malbec (9%) and Petit Verdot (3%). The wine was aged 18 months in French oak barrels before bottling.
Definitely more brooding than the 2019, this 2020 leads with leather and cherry cola then black chocolate, tobacco, graphite, roasted plums, soy sauce and espresso. On the palate pencil shavings, dark chocolate, leather and toasted spice flavours give way to tobacco, cedar and coffee. It's got nice acidity and textural tannins and definitely will benefit from time in bottle.

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”.
