WineScores' Review

Savoury, fresh, sauvage.
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, primarily estate fruit -- with some Okanagan blended in.
It is decidedly more masculine and sauvage in style, offering aromas of dried herbs, smoked brown spices, roasted green bell peppers atop espresso, dark chocolate, plums, black currents and pencil shavings. Freshness shows well on the palate; it is meaty and savoury in the mouth as well, with dark mocha, roasted spices, grilled meats, tobacco and black fruits.
It's a substantial wine showcasing its Lillooet roots.

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”.
