WineScores' Review

Rich, buttery, delicious.
Chardonnay has been part of the Rombauer family's portfolio since the beginning, it was the first variety they crushed at their new winery in 82, and is certainly what they're most known for. When they built their winery they did so as a custom crush to recoup the cost of the build and in those early days were home to some of Napa Valley's most iconic wines, including: Duckhorn, Spottswoode, Etude and Dominus.
Golden hued and delivering ripe yellow apples, toasted pastries, honey, acacia and browned butter aromas it then rolls into a creamy yet fresh palate. Rich and buttery like the nose it shows generous golden fruits, creamed butter and grilled lemons with baking spice flavours trailing on the finish. Supple and balanced, woven and delicious.

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”.
