WineScores' Review

Inky, savoury, potent.
Naramata Bench's distinguished Poplar Grove produces this proprietary blend of Cabernet, Syrah and Merlot, which was harvested from Naramata and Osoyoos, Aged 21 months in French oak before an additional year in bottle, in cellar, prior to release.
Spiced cocoa and black currents,, plums and vanilla, sage, salted licorice, smoked meat and white pepper are expressed on the nose. It's a toasty and savoury wine with loads of black fruit, roasted spice, espresso and cooca. Inky and potent it still boasts the balance of freshness.

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”.
