WineScores' Review

Juicy, spicy, intriguing.
Mt. Boucherie owns vineyards across the Okanagan, and in the Similkameen Valley. Coming from the southern Similkameen , near Cawston, Blaufrankisch (aka Lemberger) is indeed a rare variety, one which is dark skinned, late ripening and tannic, and is said to have come from Slovenia.
It's a spicy wine; aromas of wild berries, cedar, tobacco and white pepper lead to a supple palate with juicy berries and a wild character. Most notable is its freshness. An intriguing wine with good length that well-suited to a slight chill down.

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”.
