Moon Curser Border Vines 2018

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBorder vines is a cabernet forward blend of 69/15/10/3/3/ cabernet sauvignon, malbec, petit verdot, carménère, cabernet franc. At a hefty 14.8 percent alcohol, you feel the cabernet sauvignon tannins and the power of the petit verdot. It is a bit of a bruiser at this point and will need time to settle down in the bottle. All East Bench fruit from the Osoyoos region has been well-ripened, picked at full maturity, and fermented and aged in classic 225-litre French oak barrels (31 percent new). Rich and potent black fruits reminiscent of Bing cherries, black currants, and blueberries with dark chocolate, spice, and savoury dried herbs. Youthful and rambunctious but has fine potential. I suggest five years in the bottle or serve with a slab of rare beef.Tasted: 14 December 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 26.99 select private retailers and restaurants Producer: Moon CurserDistributors: BCWineshop
