WineScores' Review

Smoky, savoury, fresh.
Without doubt, Michael Bartier is one of British Columbia's most talented and humble winemakers. He makes honest wines and trusts the site and the fruit to dictate the wine. This Cab Franc comes from fruit grown on the Black Sage gravel bar in the estate Cerqueira Vineyard and it was matured for 14 months in 225L neutral French oak barrels.
Spiced plums and currents, smoked meat and fresh earth, espresso and carob notes lead to a similarly savoury palate. It has notable freshness and rolls out wild berry flavours layered with dark cocoa, smoked spices, tobacco and leather--the finish is lively and peppery.
618 cases made.

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”.
