WineScores' Review

NEW, expressive, modern
After almost 20 years of making wine and building the Laughing Stock brand, David and Cynthia Enns sold their popular premium winery and have moved just down the road. Now closer to the village of Naramata, they have decided to focus on a single varietal. Their new estate (formerly an abandoned pear orchard they discovered in 2012) is planted exclusively with Pinot Noir and its first wine (400 cases) is being released online only in June and due to Covid-19 partial proceeds from sales will go to the Food Coalition, a partnership between Vancouver restaurants and local farmers to feed Vancouver's most vulnerable.
The wine will be available for 1 Mill Road mailing list members and select wine stores and restaurants.
It's a modern Pinot with a sweet and spicy character; blueberry and raspberry, vanilla and violets cedar chips and baking spice aromas lead to a silky palate. Expressive fruit is melded with classic Pinot flavours. It is buoyant and has impressive persistence.

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”.
