WineScores' Review

Opulent, plush, delicious.
The recently turned Rust Wine Co. (formerly Rustico Farm & Cellars) is located on Golden Mile Drive and is one of the handful of wineries allowed to use the designation Golden Mile Bench sub-GI. This wine comes from that bench.
Housed in a sturdy bottle with an orange wax sealed cork, this estate Merlot is rich and opulent; expect plum and black cherry, vanilla, spice and licorice with velvety chocolate notes. The palate is equally plush with supple fruit, intense mocha and sweet tannins. Approachable, delicious and lengthy.

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”.
