WineScores' Review

This is the third vintage of CedarCreek's Pinot Noir pink. It is made by bleeding off juice from Pinot Noir grapes while in fermenting tanks (aka saignee), they get this brilliant ruby-hued rose.
It's wonderfully scented with strawberries and cream, raspberry, nectarine stone, orange zest, rose petals and lilacs. I love the concentration; it is tangy and zesty and does have some residual sugar but is deftly balanced. Pristine berries, tobacco and potpourri, spice and citrus zest flavours hang on for a good length.
Pair with friends on the patio, chilled spicy noodles, smoked salmon or pretty much anything you want.

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”.
