WineScores' Review

Charming, restrained, snappy.
This gorgeous bottle houses a pale salmony pink, which is a blend of Grenache with 20% Cinsault, 20% Tibouren (first you've heard that one, I'll wager) and 10% Syrah. Additionally, Chateau Roubine is certified organic and has been utilizing biodynamic practices for many years.
This vintage offers aromas of kumquats and rooibos tea, citrus blossoms, fine spices and pencil eraser. It is bright and tangy in the mouth with restrained flavours of pink grapefruit and wild red berries. It seems to be lighter than the last vintage I tasted (2016) and is certainly a snappy sip deserving attention.

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”.
