The 2011 Road 13 Syrah-Mourvedre shows a dark ruby-violet hue from the grape bunches being well exposed to sunshine.
The nose is lifted with complex notes of pepper, vanilla pod and orange peel. The rich and vibrant nose also shows delicious aromas of clove, blackberry and dark chocolate.
The palate of this wine is rich, sexy, round, and voluptuous with generous flavours of blackberry, chocolate, violet, vanilla
and orange blossom. The 2011 Road 13 Syrah-Mourvedre is a great example of what the Southern Okanagan can do with this classic Southern Rhone style blend. It is a powerfull, fresh, youthful wine with assertive tannins, great spice and an
impressively long finish.
