WineScores' Review

Supple, fragrant, structure.
This premium level Merlot is from the South Okanagan not far from Oliver.
Here is a excellent example of what Cassini is doing, and why they are garnering such attention.
Expect rich cassis and black raspberry, vanilla, mocha, baking spices and dried violets. It is supple with sweet berry flavours, dusty plums and mocha alongside pipe tobacco and vanilla. Very good balance and structure.
Excellent consistency vintage to vintage.
Pair: Grilled steaks, pork roast, lamb, braised veal, red pasta sauce, venison, Camembert or aged cheeses.

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”.
