WineScores' Review

Classic, silky, stylish.
Tasted bottle No.495 of 2,700.
This organic, vegan and regeneratively farmed Pinot Noir was harvested from Covert Farm's estate's Mimi Block (planted in 2009) and aged 21 months in French oak.
Beautifully woven, you can expect classic notes of sweet red cherry and vanilla, star anise, cedar chips, violets, raspberry, beets rolled in cocoa and fresh earth. It has a silky palate that is fresh and stylish. Red berries, earth and fine spice flavours mirror the nose. Expect good length with some grip on the finish and flavours of leather and tealeaf. Savoury notes of beet greens, wild herbs and rainforest floor are woven with sweet red current and cherries, baking spices and orange peel. It is silky and shows a classic Pinot earthy character along with bacon fat, fine spice and cocoa.

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”.
