WineScores' Review

Juicy, earthy, lovely.
Stag's Hollow is located in the Okanagan Falls sub-GI and celebrated 25 years in 2020.
This Pinot, made from 25-year-old estate grown Stag's Hollow Vineyard Dijon (115, 667) clone grapes is a fine representation of the variety. The vines in this vineyard are the estate's oldest at 28 years. The lots were vinified and aged separately in 300L (16% new) French oak barrels for 12 months before blending.
Another fantastic vintage for this Pinot, it leads with raspberry, red cherry, roasted beets, cedar chips and violets and suggests pomegranate, star anise and Turkish coffee undertones. It has a lovely supple entry with lovey freshness and structure. Forest floor, red fruits and fine toasted spice flavours round out the palate. Great persistence.

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”.
