WineScores' Review

Savoury, spicy, unique.
Bizou + Yukon are two Great Pyrenees that like to wander and keep guard over the vineyards owned by Okanagan Crush Pad. They sleep in a large custom made abode settled in the vines and they take turns watching over the winery's different plots of land. They snooze by day and patrol at night watching over the lawn mowers (aka sheep).
This blend of Merlot, Cab Sauv and Cab Franc is spicy and savoury dominated by bacon fat wild red berries, smoked paprika, green bell peppers and a hint of pumpkin. The palate is smooth a tad salty with peppery spices, green olives, red berries and cocoa. A unique bottle, good for holiday dinners or succulent dishes.

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”.
