WineScores' Review

Levity, zesty, spunky.
Cabernet Franc is a Tinhorn Creek flagship grape, they excel with the variety so why not use it to make rose.
The 2020 was pressed after 24 hours of skin contact with the juice, which is why this vintage has a bolder hue (the image shown does not portray the actual colour).
This vintage the colour leans ruby, with brick undertones, and the nose delights with pink grapefruit, black currents, orange zest and honey along with a suggestion of strawberry bubblegum and peach pit. It's got spunk and personality. The palate has levity and flavours of wild berries, tealeaf and citrus peel. It's also slick and has muscle on the finish.
Pair:pastas or pizza, veggies burgers, cheese and charcuterie, grilled fish.

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”.
