WineScores' Review

Powerful, meaty, brawny.
High Note is a new winery located on the Naramata Bench sub-GI and they have another vineyard in the South Okanagan.
This blend is made of Similkameen Valley Merlot with South Okanagan Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. The blend was aged in French oak barrique.
It's a powerful wine delivering notes of chocolate and black raspberry, espresso, blueberry, brown spices, pipe tobacco, dried roses, vanilla and licorice. Fleshy and fresh the palate is textural and muscular; wild berries, leather and chocolate flavours dominate. Brawny and quite tannic it has a bold spicy/meaty finish.

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”.
