WineScores' Review

Serious, fragrant, impressive.
Made from Syrah and Cabernet Franc that was aged 20 months in neutral oak barrels, this new addition to the Quails' Gate portfolio is named after a log cabin on the estate, which was built by the first European settlers on the western bank of Lake Okanagan in 1873, John and Susan Allison.Pretty aromas of purple berries and botanical, baking spice and plums, vanilla, cedar chips and mocha, lead to a juicy palate entry. A serious Cab Franc with impressive structure and grippy tannins that boasts a long dark chocolate finish. Decant if enjoying now, or cellar for a couple years.

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”.
