WineScores' Review

Bright, berries, charming.
This cultural proprietary blend of Gamay, Pinot, Dolcetto and Zweigelt comes from vineyards in the sub-GI of Okanagan Falls (designated in 2018) where Stag's Hollow is located and Keremeos in the Similkameen Valley.
Stag's Hollow describes this as a bistro wine and I wholeheartedly agree; it is refreshing, food friendly and charming.
A nose of raspberry, cherry and strawberry, star anise, vanilla and cedar leads to a juicy light-medium bodied palate. Slick, with good levity, it has flavours of fine peppery spices and tealeaf trailing on the finish.
Congrats to Stag's Hollow, which celebrates 25 years in 2020!

Pair: white meats, oily fish, hearty salads, vegetable tarts and cheeses.

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”.
