Moon Curser Tannat 2013

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is the best tannat we have seen from Moon Curser, and it has improved in my estimation since the National Wine Awards, where it showed very well. This guy is aged in 225L French oak barrels, of which 30 percent are new and 70 percent are neutral one to three-year-old vessels. It’s big and chewy but with some softness and plenty of black plum fruit, cloves and a dusting of baker’s spices. You can drink this now, preferably with a rare steak, but I would wait a decade to see the real story and it will be just fine under screwcap. The fruit is grown on the very warm Osoyoos East Bench where Moon Cursor says the sandy soils help mitigate the excessive tannins.Tasted: 04 December 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 37.30 winery direct Producer: Moon CurserDistributors: BCWineshop
