WineScores' Review

Luscious, delicious, spicy.
Lake Sonoma Winery is a business venture co-founded by Quails' Gate CEO Tony Stewart. The Lake Sonoma label was established in 1977, but the Valley of the Moon estate and winery Stewart purchased is over 150-years-old (1863) - a true piece of Californian history.
The grapes for the wines are all sourced from sub-appellations of Sonoma, in the case of this Zinfandel, Dry Creek, which is basically sandwiched between the more northerly Alexander Valley and below by the Russian River Valley.
This Zinfandel offers luscious black raspberry, cherry jam, mocha, pipe tobacco and vanilla on the nose. Mouth-filling and fruit-driven, it is a delicious Zin with great backbone and long spicy finish.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Blue Cheese & Cracked Pepper

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”.
