WineScores' Review

Classic, fresh, savoury.
Made from grapes grown primarily on the Fort Berens estate in the new GI of Lillooet, but still blended with some from the Okanagan, the vintage of the their Cab Franc shows some real Old World nuances. Red currents and pencil shavings, tealeaf and savoury spices, sit atop green bell peppers and briny green olive notes. It is medium-bodied and fresh, the palate mimics the savoury, saline character of the nose. Good balance here, integrated tannins and a spicy tealeaf finish.

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”.
