WineScores' Review

Organic, fresh, supple.
Located in Keremeos, in the arid Similkameen Valley, Robin Ridge makes wine entirely from organically grown estate fruit. As is usual, they like to hold their wines back prior to release so they are ready to drink when you are, plus for what's in the bottle, this wine shows excellent value.
Sweet plummy/cherry aromas are woven with vanilla liqueur and strawberry jam, licorice, pencil shavings, and baking spice. Nice concentration here, it is earthy and fresh with varietal purity. Savoury and sweet like the nose, the fruit is supple and it has balance and integrity; spiced cocoa and coffee flavours trail on a lengthy finish.

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”.
