WineScores' Review

Painted Rock continues to win accolades with their estate grown wines from above Skaha Lake, near Penticton.
This vintage, the Syrah was aged 18 months in oak barrels (80% new with 60% being French and 40% being American oak).
It's has a decadent nose of chocolate liqueur, vanilla and sarsaparilla rounded out with violets, blueberry and blackberry, toffee and mint. Supple on the tongue, it will seduce you with sweet fruit, dark chocolate and baking spice. There is a lovely floral component on the palate with gobs of white pepper, which trails on the finish. Great balance with plenty of acidity that begs for a bite to eat - Im thinking spicy chorizo pizza, smoked gouda and caramelized onion grilled 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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
