WineScores' Review

Earthy, honest, savoury.
This Northern Rhone-meets-Okanagan style of Syrah grown on Bartier's Cerqueira vineyard on the Black Sage Gravel Bar in Oliver was aged in neutral oak barrels for 17 months before bottling.
The 2018 offers loads of finely ground black pepper, sage, dark chocolate, espresso and spiced rubbed meat alongside tangy blackberry and red plum aromas. The palate delivers wild berry flavours carob and oak spice; a lengthy finish trails coffee. Ripe tannins add texture and it has a fresh earthy character overall.

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”.
