WineScores' Review

Juicy, salty, berries.
Having undergone a packaging makeover, Play Winery's labels are looking quite lighthearted these days. Located outside of Penticton on Skaha Hills Drive, the estate boasts outstanding views from the winery and bistro.
This Spotlight Series Malbec comes from the Don Douglas Vineyard and was aged for 16 months in French oak.
Wet concrete and freshly rolled cigar and toasted brown spice aromas are layered with sweet red berries and pomegranate syrup notes. Juicy wild red berry flavours dominate the palate along with peppery spices, andouille sausage and molasses. It has a medium+ body and chalky tannins; there is a distinct salinity on the finish.
A wine for BBQ.

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”.
