WineScores' Review

Brooding, textural, complex.
The Stewart family settled in the Okanagan Valley in 1908 and purchased the land, which is now Quails' Gate Estate in 1956. In 2015 the family celebrated 25 years of the Quails' Gate label. This vintage Cab Sauv doles out wild black berries, sagebrush, savoury spice and cocoa, tobacco and saddle leather aromas. It is textural and borders on brooding. Black fruit, bittersweet cocoa ad pipe tobacco flavours lead to a long and complex finish trailing leather and spice.
A wine for proteins, hearty stews or bean casseroles, or hard cheeses.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Parmesan & Rosemary

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”.
