Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBig wood-driven spices and camp smoke open this grenache, syrah, mourvèdre blend, with grapes sourced from the Similkameen and Okanagan valleys. the grenache and mourvèdre were cofermented along with syrah skins from an earlier fermentation. Ample cap management was followed by basket pressing into old and new French oak where it stayed until late spring when joined by the syrah. The peppery, meaty, lusty syrah rears its head in the middle, along with potent violets, blackberry jam, cured meats, and lusty ripe plum. This is a big, spicy and potent wine best enjoyed with fire grilled veg and / or red meat.Tasted: 30 June 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 winery direct and private wine shops Producer: Road 13Distributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
