WineScores' Review

Chic, stylish, complex. Painted Rock continues to win accolades with their estate grown wines from their glorious vantage point above Skaha Lake, near Penticton. Now the estate boasts a stunning new tasting room, wedding and event center with possibly the best view in the Okanagan Valley. Additionally, Painted Rock was the winner of InterVin's 2014/2015 Winery of the Year award.
Undoubtedly I have a soft spot for the Painted Rock Syrah it continues to impress with its freshness, complexity and chic style.
It's feminine and stylish with aromas of black raspberry, violets, cola spices, vanilla and finely ground black pepper. The palate follows suit; sweet and ripe berry flavours lead the palate followed with coco and spice. Exceptional complexity and posture with a long fresh finish.
Pair: spicy chorizo pizza, smoked gouda and caramelized onion grilled cheese, cheese fondue or game.

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 score
