WineScores' Review

Stylish, pretty, silky.
Quails' Gate continues to produce some of British Columbia and Canada's best Pinot Noir. Their premium Family Reserve is consistently fragrant; pretty raspberry, cherry and violets are woven with star anise, tealeaf, leather and rainforest floor. The palate is equally so; silky and finer-boned the fruit is buoyant and laced with fine spice and tealeaf.
Stylish with good persistence.
Pair: Salmon, pork or earthy dishes such as roasted beets, mushroom risotto or squash ravioli.

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”.
