WineScores' Review

NEW, pretty, pristine.
IMBZZL is a new retail exclusive second label from Laughing Stock Vineyards. As you may recall, Laughing Stock was purchased by Arterra Wines Canada a couple years back.
Marketing explains this wine as a "...little darling with a lot of attitude and 100% Okanagan grown. A play on imbibe & embezzle, IMBZZL wine are bold, unique and expertly crafted - you'll feel like you just pulled off a sneaky steal when you get your hands on a bottle."
The three wines under this label are: Ruse Rose; Fast One - Red Blend; Double Cross - Pinot Gris.
Syrah dominant, the 2020 rose is peachy-pink and suggests pretty notes of watermelon and sweet cherry, orange blossoms. honey and pink grapefruit. It has a pristine character and is off-dry (3g/L) with flavours of red berry, citrus and lavender soap with a hint of wild herbs. It's a bit hot, which makes sense coming in at 14% alc., and a candied 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 on scoring wine, go to “about”.
