WineScores' Review

Savoury, fresh, organic.
Covert Farms is a regeneratively-farmed 650-acre fourth-generation, family-owned organic farm and winery estate located just north of Oliver.
The Amicitia is a Merlot (35%), Cabernet Sauvignon (28%), Cab Franc (16%), Malbec (11%), Petit Verdot (8%) and Syrah (2%) blend aged 14 months in French and American oak.
Notes of tobacco and dried cherry are woven with creamy dark chocolate, violets, coffee, ground spices, vanilla and wild sage. It has a supple entry with flavours to echo the nose then it grows more textural toward the finish. Nicely integrated good freshness and balance.
Second review: December 2023Chocolate covered plums and Christmas cake, toasted baking spices and licorice, leather and pipe tobacco aromas lead to a supple palate with primary earthy flavours. Leather, toasted spice and coffee flavours line the palate. The finish is remains textural seven months after my last review.

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”.
