Um, more please?! I don't normally drop $35 on a bottle of wine unless it's a special occasion. But. you. must. buy. this. wine. Now see, I like my red wine to go down smooth, so smooth that it's like drinking juice. Delish!!! Oh right, the aromas and flavours and such...well.....cherry, pine, mint, cedar with very well balanced acidity and soft taninns. Normally I give away the wines I get to sample (can't possible drink them all!) but I'm hanging onto this one! There's no bad luck in Road 13.
Pair with...uh...a Friday night alone binge-watching Netflix?! Yup you deserve it after a hard week! Spoil yourself! You're worth it!
p.s., HEY LCBO! Please bring this one to Ontario!!!!

A lovely south of France style Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre blend. Aromas of cassis, pine needles, and earthiness swirl together to form a lasting peppery finish.
Wonderful paired with burgers.
Tasted Sept 2018.

I often head to the French section of Vintages to pick up GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mouvedre) blends as they are usually reasonably priced and very versatile food wines. This is the BC version and they have done it well! Soft tannins and balanced acidity. Aromas of spice and pepper and dark fruit. Black plum and vanilla flavours - it gives a perception of sweetness but the sugar level is only 2.8 g/l I would definitely buy this wine if it was available locally! Tasted September 16, 2018.
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This is nice and juicy without being overbearing. It features plum skin, blackberry, black raspberry, forest floor, porcini and wild purple flowers. Pair with stewed meats or Elk steaks. 90 Points.

very approachable GSM. soft, smooth, and a bit tannin on the palate.
