Savoury, smoked, meaty. Road 13 is located on the Golden Mile Bench sub-GI near Oliver. Their Southern Rhone-inspired version of a GSM (Grenache Syrah and Mourvedre) is a succulent blend with notes of dark roast espresso, green olives and sage, bitter chocolate, bacon fat and smoked spices atop blackberry and black plum aromas. The palate mimic the nose; charred spices, dark chocolate and coffee beans, black fruits and iodine with tobacco flavours trailing on the finish.
It's medium+ bodied with a strong Mourvedre character.
Second review: November 2022
A spicy wine with licorice and cherry flavours woven with white pepper, violets, vanilla and cedar chips. Expressive sweet fruit shines on the palate along with espresso, brown spices, bittersweet cocoa and tealeaf. The Mourvedre power and broodiness comes through on the finish.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper
Rich Meats , Cheese - Hard/Aged, GONE CRACKERS
