WineScores' Review

Expressive, juicy, approachable.
While the newly turned Rust Wine Co. is located on Golden Mile Drive and is one of the handful of wineries allowed to use the designation. However, this wine comes from the Lazy River Vineyard in the Similkameen Valley and it was fermented and aged in stainless steel, 1/3 of it went through carbonic maceration, which lends the wine its fruity character, and less tannic structure.
I love this style of red, juicy and expressive with cherries, strawberry twizzlers, leather, brown spices and beets on the nose. Similar flavours of strawberry jelly are woven with nutella. Fresh and approachable with a light body that responds well to a chill.
A year round wine, from holiday turkey to patio sipping.

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”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
