WineScores' Review

Savoury, sturdy, fresh.
Made from 40+-year-old vines on the estate vineyard located in Osoyoos, the grapes were fermented in stainless and the wine was aged entirely in new and neutral American oak for 16 months.
Forest berries and plummy notes are layered with cocoa nibs, espresso, charred cedar, toasted spice, leather and tobacco. It has notable acidity and a mix of charred spices, wild herbs and tangy red fruit flavours. The tannins are chalky and the finish trails cocoa and coffee.
A wine for sturdy dishes such as game, wild mushroom pasta, braised lamb and lentils

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”.
