Road 13 GSM 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIts been a while since we've tasted a GSM blend from Road 13. The last that crossed our tasting table was the 2013 version, then labelled Small Lot Collection. This year the grenache and mourvedre were cofermented with syrah skins from an earlier fermentation. After punching down for ten days or so, this was pressed to older and newer French until the following spring, when some of the syrah (five percent) was added in. This also carries a two percent tip of viognier. Ripe plum, dusky wild blackberries lead a warm, brambled palate, streaked with leather and lightly sticky tannins. Lovely balance in this Okanagan red, and ideal for autumnal consumption with grilled sausages and winter squashes.Tasted: 14 August 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 winery direct and private wine shops Producer: Road 13Distributors: Revelry Import Company
