WineScores' Review

Ruby, juicy, slick.
The family heirloom known as Covert Farms, is a 650-acre multi-functional estate that was established in 1959 at McIntyre Bluff.
Ignoring the trend of pale and silvery pinks, Covert Farms delivers their version, which is bright ruby red. Made predominantly from Merlot, it also has 15% Cabernet Franc and 10% Syrah in the blend. Organic certified it was soaked on skins for 9 hours and aged on lees in stainless for 4 months. Fresh notes of cranberry juice, raspberries and concord grapes are layered with honey, orange blossoms and cedar chips. It's off-dry, juicy and has a boozy edge, the texture is slick with good intensity. Flavours of charred rhubarb and cherry pit dominate the palate.

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”.
