WineScores' Review

Fresh, straightforward, spicy.
Ah, BC's polarizing rare variety. It does have its followers here though, and most of it's made from long running family vineyards. Those who love Marachel Foch have an almost cult-like reverence for this grape.
This vintage is pretty standard for Oak Bay; spicy, meaty and savoury with notes of leather, iodine and wild red berries. The palate follows suit; it is fresh and straightforward with a spicy finish and decent balance overall.
Pair: Grilled beef, wild mushroom ragout, braised short ribs, aged strong cheeses.

*Bottle shape and look differs from that shown.

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”.
