WineScores' Review

Elegant, expressive, energetic.
2014 was a textbook Okanagan vintage for Painted Rock, hot, consistent and a nicely tapered September. This opulent Cabernet Franc spent 18 months in 30% new French oak barrels before bottling.
Notable sweet raspberry, blueberry, vanilla and crushed violet aromas leap energetically from the glass and are followed by pipe tobacco and baking spices. It is a juicy and expressive, feminine style; mouth-filling and smooth overall, it also boasts fine textural tannins, which add chew. It has a slick weight and long elegant 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”.
