WineScores' Review

Delicious, spicy, generous.
This Winemaker's Cut wines come from vineyards in Oliver, which rely on no pesticides or herbicides, which means their focus leans toward natural wines. Ideally, in the winery, they use only native yeast, no, or minimal fining (only bentonite and time), and very light or no filtration at all.
As seems the norm with this Syrah, it is generous; fleshy aromas of sweet black cherries, blackberry, smoked spices and cracked black pepper are woven with licorice and violets. Vanilla, black pepper and cherry flavours dominate the palate, mocha trails on a long finish with fine textural tannins.
Delicious.

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
