WineScores' Review

This Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) was aged in French and American oak and its name, Hee-Hee-Tel-Kin is an Okanagan Sylix term to describe an elusive and mystical high country Alpine stag.
The wine has the Okanagan stamp; cherries, currents and tobacco, toasted oak and spice, chocolate and sage with peppery spices. It has a fresh entry, then skin tannins really kick in dominating the palate and the fruit underneath. Bitter cocoa, toasted spice and tobacco linger. It has a coarseness that can be softened by serving with food; protein or even just some aged cheese.

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”.
