WineScores' Review

If there's anyone who really carries a torch for Cabernet Franc, it's Tinhorn Creek alongside winemaker Sandra Oldfield and viticulturist Andrew Moon.
The 2010 offers mixed red and black currents, cocoa, savoury spices, dried herbs and sweet vanilla. The palate follows suit - it has a very pleasing weight and freshness in the mouth and flavours of currents, cocoa and spice mimic the nose. Consistently good.
Recommended pairings: grilled sausages or grilled portobello mushrooms, burgers or rich tomato ragu pasta

Recommended Pairings
Rich Meats , Barbeque, Tomatoes and Tomato Sauces, French Food, GONE CRACKERS

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”.
