WineScores' Review

Opulent, oily, exotic.
Road 13 is leading the BC pack paying homage to the wines of the Rhone. They aren't the only ones doing so, but they are doing it with great 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.
There were 153 cases of this opulent white, which offers aromas of ginger biscuits, exotic spices, lime, pine resin, tropical flowers, candle wax and a core of rich honey. The palate is oily and weighty with wonderful concentration balanced with mouthwatering acidity. Incredible length trailing stone fruit, honey and lime flavours.

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”.
