WineScores' Review

Muddled, spicy, substantial.
Rust Wine Co. is located on Golden Mile Drive and is one of the handful of wineries allowed to use the designation Golden Mile Bench sub-GI. but this wine comes from South Cawston in the Similkameen Valley. Notes of red plums and chocolate are muddled with blackberry, charred spices and wet soil. There are some tertiary character on the palate; cigarbox and tealeaf, aging fruit and toasted spice. Dark espresso and bitter greens linger on the 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”.
