WineScores' Review

Fragrant, savoury, spicy.
Time (along with Evolve Cellars and McWatters Collection and the winery + kitchen and tasting bar in downtown Penticton) is now under the umbrella of Five Vines Cellars after being purchased from the McWatters family by Ron and Shelley Mayert in June, 2020. Christa-Lee McWatters remains as general manager and Darrian McWatters as operations manager.
Born of the Sundial Vineyard in Oliver and the Saddle Ridge Vineyard in Osoyoos, this opulent Syrah spent 16 months in French oak before bottling.
A fragrant red, it doles out plush aromas of plum cake and blackberries, cracked pepper and espresso, spiced cocoa and vanilla. It's a fresh version, savoury with succulent black fruit, meat and spice; the finish trails salted licorice.
Second review: March 8, 2021
Plums and black raspberries, purple flowers and vanilla, carob and spice notes lead to a palate with white pepper, cocoa and wild berry flavours. Good freshness overall, tobacco flavours and chalky tannins trail across the finish.

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”.
