WineScores' Review

Berry, sarsaparilla, chocolate.
Located south of Oliver on the way to Osoyoos, C.C Jentsch wines recently crossed my desk. It was the first I had heard of this new label. There's little information on their slick website, but the family has been fruit growers in the Okanagan since the late 1920s.
The Chase is a blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. It's a very approachable wine, which offers black cherry, smoked plums, wild berries, spice cake, sarsaparilla, leather, dried sage and vanilla. Expect good concentration and a liqueur-like character. Mocha, sweet spices, tobacco and licorice flavours make for an easy-drinking wine.
Pair: BBQ, sticky ribs, chili, hearty pastas.

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”.
