Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Very dark in colour with purple tints, this wine opens with aromas of blueberry pie, black cherry, plum, and hints of black pepper and a subtle ‘amimale’ wild game complexity. These aromas continue onto the palate and are joined by pomegranate, in a full, rich, expansive palate with incredible length of flavour and abundant, fine grained tannins.
Vineyard Notes
The 2015 growing season was long, dry and extremely hot. Plagued by forest fires in August, we had weeks where the smoke blocked out the sun, cooling down the temperatures and slowing down photosynthesis. Overall, the momentum of the warm season could not be denied and most varietals ripened 3-4 weeks ahead of normal with outstanding quality. The grapes for the 2015 Syrah primarily came from vineyards owned by Road 13 in the Okanagan and neighboring Similkameen valleys. During harvest the grapes were sampled bi-weekly to measure flavour development and phenolic ripeness. Each variety and parcel of fruit was picked at its optimal point of flavour development for the intended big, rich, style of wine that we were targeting.
Production Notes
94% Syrah... 3% Viognier... 3% Roussanne... 2% Mourvedre
Winemaker Notes
During vintage, the grapes for the 2015 Syrah were all carefully sorted, and destemmed without crushing into small open top vessels for true small lot fermentation. When possible, viognier, roussanne, and mourvedre were co-fermented along with syrah. The caps were punched down by hand 3 times daily for about 8-10 days and the wine was then pressed off in our wooden basket press to commence the maturation process. The final blend was assembled, clarified, and bottled in April, 2017.
Food Pairing Notes
We recommend pairing this wine with cured meats like prosciutto, and salami, grilled red meats, venison and other wild game and a wide variety of cheeses.

I would say it's better than pretty good but not quite excellent. lush with a bit of sweetness on the finish. Would likely go very well with ribs

Excellent, as good as any Okanagan rose. Fine balance of acidity and sweetness.
