WineScores' Review

Succulent, brooding, handsome.
Located south of Oliver on the way to Osoyoos, the family owners of CC Jentsch have been fruit growers in the Okanagan since the late 1920s.
The Chase is a blend of Cabernet and Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. It's a handsome wine, which offers wild fresh berries, smoked plums, leather, toasted spices, cocoa, sage and tomato leaf aromas. It is succulent and supple, almost brooding in character, with roasted espresso beans, dark chocolate and mixed spice flavours. Good overall balance here, a serious red.
Pair: BBQ, grilled meats, roasted portobello mushroom ravioli and hard 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”.
