WineScores' Review

Tangy, young, textural.
Joven is Spanish for young, and this version from Stag's Hollow comes from estate vines in Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard, Okanagan Falls sub-GI and the Stag's Hollow Vineyard, Okanagan Falls sub-GI. It went through Malolactic fermentaion in stainless steel and neutral oak barrels and matured on fine lees for 9 months. A splash of Dolcetto was added before bottling, it was unfined and unfiltered.
Cherry cough syrup and mashed strawberries, vanilla, pretty rose petals and wet cedar aromas lead to a restrained palate. Red tart fruit, cedar, tobacco dust and dried violet flavours dominate the palate, the acidity is notable, the tannins textural.
A wine for higher acid foods with tomatoes, or classic Spanish tapas.

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”.
