WineScores' Review

Fragrant, fresh, effusive
Named after the Jackpot Goldmine in the South Okanagan, Road 13's Jackpot label has several wines including this Malbec. It's a new one for me, and it delivers.
Fragrant black cherry, blackberry, chocolate, vanilla, candied rose petals, licorice, clove and cinnamon aromas dominate the nose. The palate is just as effusive--licorice, mixed spices, black fruits and marzipan with a grape-y finish. Good freshness overall with chalky tannins.

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”.
