WineScores' Review

Savoury, smoked, meaty. Road 13 is located on the Golden Mile Bench sub-GI near Oliver. Their Southern Rhone-inspired version of a GSM (Grenache Syrah and Mourvedre) is a succulent blend with notes of dark roast espresso, green olives and sage, bitter chocolate, bacon fat and smoked spices atop blackberry and black plum aromas. The palate mimic the nose; charred spices, dark chocolate and coffee beans, black fruits and iodine with tobacco flavours trailing on the finish.
It's medium+ bodied with a strong Mourvedre character.
Second review: November 2022
A spicy wine with licorice and cherry flavours woven with white pepper, violets, vanilla and cedar chips. Expressive sweet fruit shines on the palate along with espresso, brown spices, bittersweet cocoa and tealeaf. The Mourvedre power and broodiness comes through on the finish.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper

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”.
