WineScores' Review

Supple, bright, stylish
Only 17 barrels of the Platinum series Pinot Noir were produced in 2019. The Home Block, planted in 1991, is located around the existing and newly renovated winery, restaurant and guest center. It's made from a mix of Burgundian clones and was aged on lees in French oak barrels for 16 months.
I have to admit, the combination of blocks (rather than the single block Aspect series) seems more harmonious. Not that the single blocks are not outstanding, but the blend stands out.
Beet and black cherry aromas are woven with licorice, purple flowers, vanilla, fine spices and Turkish coffee. It has a supple entry with sweet bright fruit flavours. Outstanding style and balance overall with chalky tannins across the finish. Very Pommard-esque.

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”.
