WineScores' Review

Opulent, oily, honeyed.
Road 13 is a strong proponent of Rhone Valley grape varieties They aren't the only ones doing so, but they are doing it with enthusiasm.
The VRM is an acronym for Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne and the grapes are harvested from the Blind Creek Vineyard in the southerly Similkameen Valley.
Golden-hued and potent, it offers honey, lanolin, ripe peach and mango aromas melded with conifer and vanilla and smokey and sweaty undertones. The palate is intense and boozy, golden and tropical fruits are weighted with honeyed flavours. Creamy and oily it's a concentrated and lengthy wine.


 
Recommended Pairings
Good First Impressions, Seafood/Fish, White Meat Chicken/Pork, Creamy Dishes

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.
