WineScores' Review

Winemaker Laurie Hook continues to make exceptional wines for this historic estate winery - the wines are elegant, with old world charm combined with new world fruit. Knight's Valley is more rustic than many nearby regions and has volcanic and alluvial soils, which Hook feels produces the unique characteristics she desires in this wine.
The Knight's Valley exemplifies this. Expect plush cassis and sweet spices, dark chocolate, graphite and mint, roasted coffee and savoury undertones of dried herbs and roasted bell peppers. It is a mouthfilling and lush wine laden with dark fruit, mocha and brown spices. It has wonderful acidity to balance, fantastic concentration and a lengthy spiced cocoa 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”.
