Moon Curser Syrah

Moon Curser Syrah 2015

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSmoked meats, dried violets, potent black licorice fills the palate of this Osoyoos syrah, entirely from Bartsch Vineyard. Sun-ripened sweetness dominates, followed by hard pressed tannins, reflective of fermentation in oak and stainless, followed by aging in mostly Hungarian oak. That eastern European spiciness is evident throughout, as are the rustic edges not nearly filled out by the perfumed violets and vanilla that stick on the pasty finish. Overt and potent, from a hot year.Tasted: 10 September 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 23.39 winery direct, private wine shops, restaurants Producer: Moon CurserDistributors: BCWineshop
