WineScores' Review

Muscular, supple, savoury.
This is a premium blend of 49% Petit Verdot harvested from Oliver and Osoyoos, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon from Blasted Church’s estate vineyard on the Skaha Bench, and 11% Cot Noir (Malbec) from Osoyoos. It’s a muscular, slightly brooding wine with aromas of black currents, smoked cherries, vanilla, cocoa, leather and toasted spice. Flavours of bacon fat, wild herbs, tealeaf, dark chocolate and spice linger on a supple palate with polished tannins.

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”.
