WineScores' Review

Dry, slick, statuesque.
Having undergone a packaging makeover, Play wines are looking more svelte these days. The winery itself is outside of Penticton on Skaha Hills Drive and boasts some outstanding views from the winery and bistro.
This saignee (to bleed off colour from red grape skins, resulting in a rose) method pink is a rusty peach colour and is made from classic Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. The packaging will grab you with its wide-bottomed bottle topped with a glass stopper.
Red currents and sour cherry, charred orange peel, cedar, tealeaf and faint spice aromas lead to a dry palate with flavours to echo the nose. Slick and quite statuesque with a slightly bitter character, this is a pink that will stand up to grilled foods.

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”.
