WineScores' Review

Toasty, bold, focused.
Pioneering outside of the Okanagan Valley in Kamloops, Harper’s Trail is named for another upstart, cattle drive rancher, Thaddeus Harper. Winemaker Michael Bartier has been consulting on the project since day one.
Lees and heavily autolytic aromas are layered with apple sauce, toasted brioche and grilled lemons. The palate is pristine and juicy; acidity carves out a creamy wedge. Bold and focused and great value.

Recommended Pairings
Cheese - Semi Hard / Medium , Seafood/Shellfish, White Meat Chicken/Pork

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”.
