WineScores' Review

Succulent, velvety, complete.
Only 24 barrels (860 cases) of this estate-grown Syrah were produced - it's one of the 25th Anniversary Edition label wines, sold only at the winery.
Syrah has a unique expression in the Okanagan, it is decidedly savoury, in a bloody way.
Grilled meat, bacon fat, dark chocolate and leather lead the aroma wheel here, then vanilla, wild forest berries, dusty back plums and peppery spice kick in. It is a velvety and supple wine with amazing structure, pepper and mocha flavours. It's all-in, woven and complete with wonderful brightness and a long chocolaty 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
