WineScores' Review

Decadent, plush, depth.
Made from specially selected vineyard blocks in the Similkameen Valley and neighboring South Okanagan Valley. Signature varies each vintage and the 2011 is made from 44% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc 22%, Malbec 6% and Petit Verdot 5%.
It has a plush, decadent nose of chocolate, espresso, cassis, vanilla and licorice with layers of black cherry, raspberry, baking spices and crushed purple flowers. The palate is fresh and finely textured with loads of black and purple fruits, pipe tobacco, sweet spices and mocha flavours. Great balance and persistence - another great vintage!

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”.
