WineScores' Review

Fresh, savoury, robust.
Located on the Skaha Bench sub-GI near Penticton, Painted Rock continues to wow media and consumers with top quality wines. This already sold out rose is made from estate Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Syrah and a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon.
It's a stained cranberry shade and suggests apple peel and sour cherries, tangerine and red currents, white pepper and grilled herbs. Great structure here, a robust and boozy pink with a slick texture and balanced freshness. It's also harmonious with a savoury and zesty finish.
It definitely has some heat, it weighs in a 14.3% alc.

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”.
