Road 13 Jackpot Syrah 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaRoad 13 takes their Jackpot Syrah to another level of ripeness, clocking in at 15.3% abv on the label. It’s really more shiraz-like in style, with jammy black fruits and white pepper that will you have you thinking Barossa. Just replace sagebrush for Australia’s eucalyptus. The tannins are quite polished, and the wood more in the background, making this approachable even just two years after the vintage. I don’t know if weight and opulence is the future of Okanagan syrah, but there’s no denying that this is an enjoyable pour all the same.Tasted: 05 November 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 43.48 wine club exclusive Producer: Road 13Distributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
