WineScores' Review

New, weighty, classic.
Made in West Kelowna, from grapes sourced from two vineyards in the Columbia Valley, in Washington State, this new label offers a Roussanne and a Syrah, varieties classic to the Rhone Valley.
The Roussanne was fermented in neutral oak barrels and aged on lees in French oak for 5 months. Roussanne produces a fuller-bodied style of white with medium acidity and higher alcohol, in general. This one is a classic example; smoked lemons, golden apples, pine, candle wax and bruised apple aromas lead to an oily and somewhat resinous palate. It's weighty is bordering on over-ripe with hints of marzipan and lemon peel flavours. Overall, a very good example.

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”.
