Savoury, toasted classic.
Road 13, which as of 2019 is certified organic, is a strong proponent of Rhone Valley grape varieties such as this Syrah, which was harvested from all seven of Road 13s Syrah blocks (it is blended with 1% Viognier) from the east and west side of the south Okanagan Valley. It was aged in 20% new French and American oak barrels before bottling.
Dark chocolate and white peppery notes meld with blackberry, vanilla, paprika dusted plums and licorice. It has a classic Syrah character; meaty and savoury with distinct charred spice flavours. Hints of cigar ash trail on the finish. It's a toasted and extracted red with sooty dry tannins.
Pair hard cheeses, protein rich meals, or grilled mushrooms.
