WineScores' Review

Velvety, fresh, supple.
Harvested from CedarCreek's Home Vineyard, this estate level Pinot Noir was fermented with wild yeasts in concrete and stainless vessels then aged 12 months in French oak.
Velvety aromas of raspberry coulis, vanilla, licorice root and carob, cherries, dried roses, fine spice and forest floor lead to a expressive palate. The entry is supple. it's an earthy wine highlighted by bright cherry, raspberry, vanilla and star anise flavours. Good freshness and balance here, its both approachable and classic.
Pair: Mushroom Wellington, roasted beet risotto or grilled salmon.

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”.
