WineScores' Review

Elegant, classic, fine.
Spearhead, located in east Kelowna, makes this single vineyard Pinot from the estate Saddle Block Vineyard, which contains three Dijon clones (115, 777, 828, 667 ); it was then aged 13 months in 100% French oak.
The nose is a lovely potpourri of cedar chips and dried violets, bright red berry and cherry aromas, finely ground baking spice, and suggestions of leather, cocoa and beet greens. The palate is juicy and has classic pinosity; tangy red fruits mimic the nose and it has a fine-boned and feminine character. It is elegant, silky, lifted and complex; all in one.

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”.
