WineScores' Review

Fragrant, unique, fresh.
One of the more curious combinations I have seen, the bold purple fruitiness of the Petit Verdot (85%) is a very pleasing addition to the classic meaty Malbec (15%) a style of Malbec, which the Okanagan tends to lean toward. The wine comes from two specific blocks and was aged for 12-16 months in mixed barrels (French and American). Only 88 cases were made--for wine club members only.
As noted, it's an interesting wine with a nose of blueberry, roses and lilacs, sarsaparilla and mocha. The palate mimics the nose but is fresher and leaner, which makes for a better food wines, and ergo, one you will return for, sip after sip.

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”.
