WineScores' Review

Fresh, pretty, honest.
Grown on the Black Sage gravel bar in Bartier's estate Cerqueira vineyard, once again, this fresh Merlot doesn't resemble so many of the over-oaked versions the Okanagan has been known for.
A pretty nose offers black raspberry and juicy plums, violets, pipe tobacco, vanilla and sweet spice aromas. It's medium+ bodied, smooth and juicy with fine tannins; the levity here is notable. An honest Merlot that's a delight to drink.
Pair: Anything you can throw on the grill or a nice round of brie cheese.

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”.
