WineScores' Review

Graceful, classic, elegant.
Formerly labelled the Platinum Block 2 Pinot Noir, this new label refers to the Aspect (aka direction and slope of the vineyard) of Block 2, which is planted with vines (clone 115) 30 years old and located on the lower slopes of CedarCreek's Home Vineyard. It was aged 14 months in French oak barrels, 18% new.
Graceful notes of sour cherry and bilberry, dried violets, wet cedar, star anise and beet greens lead to a palate brimming with purity and classic Pinot character. It has a supple weight and silky texture. Bacon fat, forest berries and earthy flavours are layered with fine spice. It has elegance and balance, but is still youthful; I recommend decanting.

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”.
